Hi John,


So glad we could "bring history to life" for you through the senses!  Thank you also for being my minuet partner =)

Your contributions to our class discussions were insightful and much appreciated! The overlap of the Colonial and Baroque eras was a great point.  Also your wonders about the colonial money exchanges between the various colonies is terrific food for thought.

I hope the dances are fun for your students, especially on those post-concert days!  Your connections between band composers and the eras in which they lived will be great for your band students as well.  I look forward to borrowing several of your Brass Band Civil War era resources from your ARS. Thank you for a thoughtful collection!!

I hope you have a wonderful summer!  Happy retirement to Mrs. Cleveland! =)
