IMEA’s annual conference (in Ft. Wayne this year) is a chance for orchestra directors, band directors, choir directors, private instructors, students, and a host of others to gather in one place to learn and share.  I’ve attended each year for the past decade and always enjoy the performances, sessions, and clinics.  It’s also a good chance for a bunch of very busy people to actually see one another face-to-face!  Encore will maintain normal hours through the weekend even though some staff will be enjoying the balmy weather in Ft. Wayne!
