SUMMER AIM / LAW

posted May 15, 2019, 7:50 AM by Kathy Scheel
AIM  =   ADVENTURES IN MUSIC
LAW =  LEARN ARM WAVING

WHEN:      July 20-21
WHERE:    Village Green Resort, Cottage Grove, OR


This educational workshop is being presented by Region 12 to provide high quality of education to those of us who live in Oregon and may not be able to regularly attend the Winter and Fall AIM weekends in Sacramento, CA.  This is the first time the Region is spending the additional money to bring in a member of the International Faculty, so let's show them we appreciate their efforts by ATTENDING!

Paula Davis is our Past President of Sweet Adelines International.  She is also an Expression Judge, and the Director of Song of Seattle Chorus.  But she is so much more!  You will get valuable lessons from Paula as she presents classes in really engaging and personal style.  I've attended many of her classes over the years and always learn something valuable to take home with me.  In addition to Paula's classes, this region has really high level Regional Faculty who give their time to share their knowledge and expertise:  Julie Starr, Angela Suraci, Kathy Triolo, and me.
