MAYO students participated in two well-received concerts in November in Bedford and Martinsville, Indiana. Students had the opportunity of working with high orchestra members from these regions in a truly inspiring and collaborative concert series.
The concert halls were teaming with proud parents and community members, some of whom announced, this was their first classical concert experience.
Kudos to Jose Valencia, Tamara Dworetz and Paul Kim for a job well done.
Kudos to Guy Rumsey, Bedford High School, and Shelley Phillips, Martinsville High School, for their commitment to this collaboration.

The MAYO Board of Directors is seeking new members. Now is the time to let us know how you want to be involved --- membership requires a commitment to attend at least 4 board meetings a year, attendance at MAYO events, and to take an active role in one area that interests you most such as concert planning, marketing, or music committee.
The new board becomes active in August 2010.
Want to meet a current board member and find out more? Contact email@example.com.
MAYO will be switching to spring auditions. Some parents were confused by this switch. We decided to change the audition time frame to help with summer planning. We will be able to pick the repertoire sooner, provide parts in early August, and make crucial decisions about the orchestra rehearsal structure.
If you can make the dates, perfect! If you are a returning MAYO member can cannot make the audition, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will count you in on next year's roster.
Seating auditions will take place in August. We will also hold another round of new student auditions in August. It's important to hear everyone - new and returning student --- so be sure to schedule a time.
We plan on doing on-site auditions in Morgan County again this year.
