We've enjoyed each of the past nine years and we are looking forward to our upcoming classes in June. It's been wonderful to meet and work with so many talented English Horn players. We have accomplished what we set out to do, so it's time to move on to other things and awaiting projects. We would like to thank F. Lorée - Paris for their support of our classes and Mrs. Beverly Schiltz for funding the "Grover Schiltz Memorial Scholarship." Please note that the 2016 International Double Reed Society's Annual Conference will be held at Columbus State University from June 26 - 30. We hope to see you there.
