Pender’s as the Arkansas Traveler

It’s always nice to have the opportunity to display at band and orchestra meetings and conventions. There’s nothing better than face-to-face time with our customers. And it’s especially nice if it’s combined with the appearance of noted clinicians, conductors or speakers.

Take the Arkansas Bandmasters Summer Meeting, for example. Anthony Maiello (from George Mason University) will be there. On Thursday (July 28 @ 9am) he’ll present the opening Keynote Address on “Never Give Up on a Student.” Following that, he’ll be conducting a Reading Band Session on music for Grades 1 to 3 (9:30am-10:20am), as well as presenting a session around his new book, Conducting Nuances: Little Things Mean a Lot (10:30am-11:20am).

Since the exhibits don’t open until 1pm on Thursday, we’ve scheduled Dr. Maiello to be in our booth from 2:00 to 2:30pm for book signings, questions, etc.

Denis DiBlasio will be at the convention, too, and he’s going to be in the Pender’s booth just after Dr. Maiello. DiBlasio has a new set of jazz ensemble charts, published by Northeastern Music. He’s also got a new improvisation book: Pathways to Improvisation: A Resource for Learning and Teaching Jazz Improvisation. Visit with Denis in our booth from 3-3:30pm on Thursday.

Later that evening, DiBlasio’s going to be an integral part of the Arkansas Jazz Educators Clinic & Concert, scheduled for 9pm.  Go to the ASBOA website for more information regarding Dr. Maiello and/or Denis DiBlasio at the Arkansas Bandmasters Summer Meeting.

See you at the convention!

AGO Region VII Convention

Meeting and helping our customers, one-on-one, is one of the things that we enjoy doing most, and while it would be great if all of our customers had a chance to visit with us in our stores, we know that it’s just not always possible. Therefore, we rely on conventions and workshops to provide us with the opportunity to “be there for you” in person when we can.

Next month is the American Guild of Organists Region VII Convention in Oklahoma City. It’s being held downtown at the Skirvin Hilton, and includes concerts, workshops, a hymn festival, recitals and more.  Here is a Convention Program. Join Us!
