A QUICK LOOK AT CURRENT & UPCOMING ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS
September begins the new program year for GPFS and here’s the scoop! It promises to be another interesting and active year to look forward to.
All of this depends on volunteers. Most importantly, thank you to the many volunteers who lend a hand on and off and sometimes year after year after year. To all, please consider lending a bit of your time and talent when you can. Send your ideas. Share a performance. Conduct a workshop. Write a short article or two for publication. Review a piece of music or an album. Donate to support the work of GPFS, particularly our support of youth through the Student Study Grants.
o Short reviews (your choice) of sheet music, instructional methods, books or albums. This is an especially good option for the teachers among us, but open to all with an interest in sharing your thoughts and suggestions with fellow membership.
