String Leadership Day - For Directors

String Leadership Day, October 11, 2014

 

 

DEADLINE for nominating your students is Friday, September 26...no exceptions


IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS-READ CAREFULLY BEFORE NOMINATING:

  • Before you nominate, check with each of your nominees to make absolutely sure that she/he can and will attend this event if selected.  Once a nominee who been accepted cancels, the high school director is requested to fill the position with an equally-qualified student.
  • Please nominate only students who are leaders in your orchestra or who have this potential.
  • You may nominate up to 4 violins, 3 violas, 2 cellos, and 2 basses.  Be sure to list them in order of ability and note if they have been selected for All-State or are in a Youth Orchestra.
  • We will notify high school directors of student acceptance no later than October 1.  Each school with nominees is guaranteed at least one accepted student.
  • Please make sure that each accepted student practices his/her part diligently before Leadership Day.  Students who do not know their part may feel out of place.
  • IMPORTANT: If your top student(s) are interested in performing for our faculty during a Master Class, please send Dr. Mahave-Veglia an email (mahavep@gvsu.edu) letting him know why this student is outstanding and what solo he or she would play in the master class.


REMINDERS:
