South Central.

All four state associations are busily involved with preparations for their 2007 conferences. The Arkansas State MTA conference will be held at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, June 1-2, 2007. A committee is updating the musicianship portion of the state syllabus for the ASMTA festivals; the region map has also been revised.

The Louisiana MTA convention will be held on October 18-20, 2007, at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. Guest clinician will be Ingrid Clarfield. Louisiana is still receiving donations to their SOS fund. A recent donation from Wisconsin enabled them to purchase a digital piano for a teacher who could not yet afford to buy an acoustic piano.

Oklahoma MTA will hold its conference June 1-2 at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. Pianist Joel Schoenhals and his wife, violist Eva Stern, of Eastern Michigan University, will be the featured performers. Composer Robert Vandall will present pedagogy sessions.

The 93rd Texas MTA convention will be held June 8-10, 2007, at the Dallas-Fort Worth Hyatt Regency Hotel in Grapevine. The convention theme is "Joining Hands for a Musical Journey." Robert Duke and Brian Chung will be featured speakers. Many exciting sessions and recitals are scheduled.

All four states were well represented at an excellent division competition and meeting in January at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. We are eagerly looking forward to the Collaborative Conference in Toronto.
