The March 31 Early Bird Discount deadline is fast approaching for the Music for All Summer Symposium and other fun camp-related stuff is coming together this week.

We’ve confirmed Jon McLaughlin to perform in concert at the camp in the evening concerts series. He performed last year and it was a great, energetic concert! Jon joins concerts already confirmed for the camp: Yamaha Young Performing Artists and the DCI Central Indiana show with top drum corps. We are finalizing the last couple of nights’ concert acts and should be able to announce those soon…I’m hoping within the next few days.

MFA staff and our SWAG Team leadership recently paid another visit to the beautiful Ball State University campus, continuing preparations for the new site of the Summer Symposium.

By enrolling before the end of March 31, you can save $60 off the student fees and $130 off the director fees! To our band director friends: don’t forget that if you bring six of your students you can attend Tuition Free, bring 12 or more and attend free…yes, free.

Directors, we also just posted links to the graduate credit information through Ball State University. MFA will verify for participation in the Directors Academy for professional development credits, however, you can also earn 1 or 2 hours of graduate credit through Ball State University for an additional fee. Check out the graduate credit details. The graduate credit fee and course requirements are different than previous years. Please carefully review the information provided at the link to the BSU website.

Until next time,

Deb Asbill
