Thank you to Mike for hosting and thank you to Stephanie for giving up a night to help out at the gate!

Directors – please fill out or email your Adjudicator Evaluation (Debe) and Site Evaluation (Mike).  It takes just a few minutes, but it really helps us improve the quality of our Festivals.

Best of luck on the rest of the season!

The Akroplolis Reed Quintet in Manistee!

This year, the Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts will host an award-winning group to perform two FREE matinee concerts available to students in K-12.

The process is simple:

1. Click on this link
2. Select which date you would like to bring your students to the Ramsdell
3. Answer the remaining questions so we can plan for your arrival (first come first serve)

Students will have a chance to tell their relatives and bring them to an evening performance on Monday, November 13 at 7pm. The concert will be free for students. Adults will pay $17 for admission.

Directors,

HELP!

I bought 4 LP Aspire castanets with a handle for our marching show.  Two of them came undone – the leather strap came untied in the middle of our performance sometime on Saturday and we only recovered one of them.

Does anyone have a pair of castanets with a handle (or even hand-held) that I could borrow?  The only other ones I have are mounted.

Thanks in advance!!

Brian Balch
