Update

(9.1.21)

     To say the pandemic has presented some unique and unprecedented challenges for the last year and a half would be an understatement. Music educators, students, and designers were thrown out of their normal routine. As a result, some of my clients chose to wait until 2021 to perform all or part of their 2020 productions. Other clients chose to have partially or completely redesigned shows. Every process was unique but I'm confident we have set the students up for success. Good luck to to all the students and staff this upcoming fall!
