September 12th: President Maki Kuper welcomes us back!
Let's hear from you about interesting events during the summer. If you attended the NFA convention and want to share an inspiring moment, or you went to music camp or you got an award or you just want to share please shoot me an email so we can plan to hear from you.
I'll lead you all in a warm up and we'll play along with our recorded videos of the Sacramento Shuffle and Bach Air.
