We were honored to have internationally known performer, teacher, clinician, author and adjudicator, Phyllis Lehrer, as our Convention Presenter this year. The morning session consisted of presentations on "Coping with Performance Anxiety" and "The Inner Game of Music." In the afternoon Phyllis gave a masterclass with students of Mitzi DeWhitt and Chris McCloskey performing. The Convention concluded with wonderful performances by our Competition winners.
