President’s Message, Summer 2016

christina headshotWhew!  Congratulations to each of you as we collectively celebrate the wrap of another successful Spring semester!

As musicians, we have an uncanny ability to take these next few months (meant, for many, to be full of rest and relaxation) and turn them into some of our fastest-paced weeks of the year.  Whether you are traveling, running summer camps, or simply maintaining status-quo, I do hope you will find opportunities to renew your spirit and get inspired for the start of a new school year (is it too soon to mention that?).

Many of you will be participating in workshops and running innovative summer programs.  Please consider taking photos of you with your fellow IMTA members at these events, and send them to me at cwpiano@comcast.net.  We would love to share some of your summer activities on the IMTA Facebook page.

As for me, my summer plans revolve around the birth of a new baby, coming in July.  There’s a good chance you’ll get a glimpse of the little lady at our 2016 State Conference!  Be sure to mark your calendars for what promises to be a terrific event:  September 30th – October 1st at Goshen College.

Here’s to sunshine, serenity, and your own summer lifestyle!

 

Christina Whitlock,
IMTA President
