South Central Division.

May and June were convention months for three of the four states in our division. Arkansas held its convention, May 31-June 1, on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Jason Issokson, the MTNA Arkansas high school string winner, and guest artist Joan Gilbert, a pianist from the University of Memphis, gave recitals. Ed Gates, NCTM, from the University of Oklahoma was the featured clinician.

Oklahoma's convention also took place May 31-June 1 at the University of Oklahoma's (OU) Norman campus. In addition to recitals by state junior high, high school and collegiate winners, guest artists Greg Sauer, assistant cello professor at OU, and his brother Thomas Sauer, a member of the piano faculty of Mannes College in New York, played a duo recital. Clinicians were Mary Sallee, NCTM, Barbara Fast, NCTM, Steve Betts, NCTM, and Kim Watson, NCTM.

Texas held its convention June 13-17 at the Corpus Christi Convention Center. Highlights included performances by guest artist and clinician Randall Faber and by student competition and composition winners. There also were student affiliate ensemble programs and more than thirty sessions given by prominent Texas teachers and college faculty members. Out-of-state clinicians included Brian Chung and MTNA President-Elect Phyllis Pieffer, NCTM.
