Have you completed your registration for the 2012 Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) Conference in New York City?! Today is the early registration deadline, so you can save $50 if you register by today. My registration is in and I am eagerly looking forward to a wonderful week in The Big Apple next spring!
Also, if you’re planning to attend the conference, check out the page of great discounts you can get at Carnegie Hall and for the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra using the code provided by MTNA. The Summer 2011 issue of Listen magazine had an interesting article about the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, so I was thrilled to see that MTNA secured a special discount for their concerts. Several friends and I have purchased tickets for their Saturday evening performance at Carnegie Hall. I think it would be fun to plan a meet-up for dinner prior to the concert on Saturday, so let me know if you’re interested and I’ll keep you in the loop. We had a fabulous time at our meet-ups in 2010 and 2011, so I’m excited to do it again!
Lastly, I am excited to announce that I am planning to live-blog the 2012 MTNA Conference! Those of you who can’t make the trip to New York City this year will be able to follow along virtually as I post updates from the conference immediately following each session. It should be a fabulous conference and I’m looking forward to learning a lot!
