We're in the 2-week countdown for the CMAA Summer Colloquium. Regular registrations end on May 15th and after that it will cost you an extra Benjamin (aka $50) to register.
[Correction, thanks to Richard Chonak: - you can only save a Ulysses Grant! But remember - this is the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War.]
What could you do with that $50? I can think of lots of musical purposes: a chunk of your meal plan, some of the nifty CDs that you'll find on the book table at the Colloquium, drinks for the new friends you'll make during the rehearsals or breakout sessions,etc.
Join us! There's no other conference that provides the variety and depth that you'll find at the Colloquium: chant, polyphony, practical instruction, and uplifting experience, world-class faculty, and the chance to join forces with peers who cherish the liturgical patrimony of the Latin Rite. And lest I forget - the daily Masses that are so far from the "I-know-it's-valid-but-boy,-it's-painful-musically" world that many of us know.
Come to renew, rejoice, and restore your musicality and your spirit! And do it now!
I look forward to seeing you there.
