Patricia Hills and.Ada Wolfanger, both ACSD elementary music teachers, co-chaired the event along with James DesJardins of Frontier CSD. This was the first year the workshop has ever been held at Windermere Boulevard School. The entire workshop will be available to watch in November 2018 via the ECMEA website.
