2016 Summer Institute a mountaintop experience

This year’s Summer Institute was a mountain top experience in many ways. It was the high water mark for attendee’s in the 21 years. The spirit of joy and collegiality was one of the strongest I have ever seen. The buzz around the mentoring session, the joy and togetherness at the first annual Beer Choir night, the openness of the conductors during the masterclass, and finally the energy and expertise that Rollo Dilworth brought added so much an already  great experience.

Washington's Summer Institute, July 20-22 sets new attendance record

We'll have a full report soon, but believe me in telling you the music, the networking, and...Rollo Dilworth! What a great three days in Kilworth Hall, UPS!
