From the President (Mar. 26, 2010)

Dear Colleagues,

I have a video below that I think we should all watch. It is going to take about 20 minutes of your time, and you are going to want to watch this with all of your attention, so make sure you are in a position to view this without interruption! It is a clip of Benjamin Zander (you may know him as the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic ?) talking to a large group of people about Classical music. BUT, he has a very unique perspective here that might just recharge your batteries and give you a fresh outlook on what we do.

In a way I must apologize for always battering all of you with these ideas, but I truly believe in all of us and what we do, and I for one always need fresh reinforcement for my soul. If you find this fascinating, than you MUST visit this new website that I have been introduced to; there is so much of value on this site, and I am so enjoying exploring it. It is called ted.com, and I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed. So sit back a take this short trip with Banjamin Zander……it could change you.

Have a great weekend!

Sincerely,

Frank Whitcomb
