Texoma Presenters at the NATS National Conference

1. The Texoma Region had a strong presence at the 2014 National Conference in Boston, MA, July 5-9 as attendees, judges, officials, and presenters.  Here are the highlights of the Texoma presenters:

  • Stephen Austin – “Pre-Conference Workshop: The Pedagogy of Pedagogy”

  • Elvia Puccinelli – “Collaborative Pianist Panel: Identifying and Encouraging Collaborative Piano Talent in the Voice Studio”

2.  The next national conference is on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago in 2016, so I hope we can have an even stronger presence there!
