Thoroughly enjoyed my day in Greeley, Nebraska judging for the Central Valley Conference. Leslie Essman the the Central Valley Cougars were excellent hosts running a smooth practice contest for DMC later in April. What other conference does this? I am so impressed that these schools would have such an event for their music students. Says a lot about what they consider important. Congratulations! Enjoyed being able to work for a few short minutes with soloists and small groups. What I always wanted, and what is missing, at DMC!
