Congrats to MMAMTA member Timothy Howe!

Congratulations to Dr. Timothy Howe, trombone faculty at MU and MMAMTA member, for completing his CD project "Across the Wide Missouri"! Performers on the CD also included other MMAMTA members (Alice Dade, Leo Saguiguit, and Paola Savvidou). This project has been in the works since 2011 and included commissions of new works by Missouri composers. The CD is available at CD Baby. What a wonderful accomplishment!

Tim will be presenting a recital at MU on September 20th, Sunday, at 7:30pm, featuring all-romantic concerti for the trombone. 

Publicity Chair update

Melissa Loehnig will be helping out with publicity this year until the position is filled (thank you!!!). MMAMTA chairs, please send publicity information regarding the event you are chairing to both me and her one month prior to the event so we can get the word out. 

Piano Day @ MU

Save the date for this year's Piano Day @ MU on Saturday, October 17th, 2015. A day of masterclasses, workshops, and recitals with MU Faculty for high-school pianists. More information coming soon!
