By student request, for 2020 we will be spending most of the first day on arranging the new Project Song (an uptune recommended to us by super star arranger Robert Rund).  As soon as your registration is received, a copy of the Project Song sheet music will be sent to you. 
All of the Thursday afternoon sessions and half of the Thursday evening sessions will be devoted to arranging the Project Song in your choice of group — Beginning and Less Experienced Arrangers with Janice Wheeler or More Advanced Arrangers with Chuck Roegiers.  Then on Friday morning both groups will share results.
On Thursday evening after dinner, Mike Menefee and Chuck Roegiers are teaming up for a presentation — Arranging for Different Ensembles — sure to be a crowd-pleaser! 
During the Tin Pan Alley session on Friday morning, we have planned time for the Grand Prize Winner of the 2019-2020 Tag Writing Contest to present the winning tag and invite everyone to sing along.
Friday afternoon, Private Arranging Review sessions will be available on a first-come-first-served basis for those who have personal arranging work they would like to discuss with Faculty.
