West Central Division.
The University of Iowa Collegiate Chapter, last year's Collegiate Chapter of the Year, continues to be very active. Its members presented a session at the Toronto Conference on using improvisation in piano lessons.
Iowa would like to acknowledge its students who participated in the national competitions in Toronto. Congratulations to Chelsea Wang, junior piano; Micah Wright, senior woodwind; and Deborah King, senior voice!
The 2007 Conference of the Nebraska MTA will take place in October at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Headliners will be pianist Anton Nel and pedagogue Samuel Holland. A new feature of this conference will be a play-a-thon at a nearby mall. After students have performed their programs for the MTNA Competitions or Nebraska Festivals, they may perform at this fundraiser for the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney. The planning of this conference has demonstrated the tremendous benefits of cooperation, not only with other musical groups but with other arts organizations.
Ted Reuter and Roger Foltz, presidents of Iowa MTA and Nebraska MTA respectively, contributed to this article.
