We're been so busy that we haven't had time to brag about a couple of things associated with this year's IMEA Conference in Peoria last week.
#1 Patrick Pearson, MYA's beloved orchestra conductor, was honored at the Illinois ASTA Luncheon as Outstanding School Teacher! Patrick is also the Orchestra Director at Oak Park River Forest High School.
#2 Four out of seven members of the Honors Jazz Combo at IMEA were from MYA! Congratulations to Michael Werner, trumpet; Ben Smelser, trombone; Taylor Kroma, bass; and Adam Wrobel, drums!
