Congratulations to  Jeff Buettner, director of choral activities at Middlebury College and VYO Chorus director, for his acceptance as one of the conductors that will be working one on one with Helmuth Rilling at the Bach Institute during the Eastern Division Conference in Philadelphia. This is a distinct honor and credit to Jeff, Middlebury College and to Vermont ACDA.
We should all feel very proud of the students, choral directors and choirs that will be representing our state at this Eastern Division Conference in Philadelphia in February. Most of your ACDA VT Executive Board will be attending; I would appreciate hearing from other members that might be planning on attending?
Most Sincerely,
Frank Whitcomb
