News & Announcements

DON'T USE LEFT-OVERS FROM LAST YEAR. (If the medical form doesn't have a red line on it that mentions the new "Special Dietary Needs" form, it's the wrong one.) You may need to visit specific festival pages to get director's preference forms.

Recent Updates (As of Oct. 9, 2013)
-District Orchestra Page updated
-District Orchestra forms & new manual added
-Update to IU5 Eastern Chorus Fest page

Please contact me if there is an error on any of the pages I've just mentioned I updated. Be gentle and loving to spare my fragile self-esteem.
