Ascend Performing Arts recently attended three state music conferences, having a booth and an appearance at CMEA, TMEA, and UMEA.
This summer, the Blue Knights have been lucky to get thousands of hours’ worth of amazing volunteer help, but for the last week we’ve had someone a little bit unusual on board with us. Eric Skinner has been volunteering on the cook truck since the end of July, and also happens to be the band director at Gallia Academy High School.
Ascend Performing Arts/Blue Knights will have a booth in the exhibit hall all three days that will see about 1,600 educators and 2,000 performers and guests at the 2015 Colorado Music Educators Association conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Off to a great start! Since the beginning of this fiscal year (October 1, 2014) we’ve had 122 individuals provide 2,078.5 hours of volunteer service.
