Last week was full of reaching out to students K-12 in the South Bend, Indiana region. We even got in the car and drove to Michigan, and then reached out to them too. We played for EVERYONE – students already studying instruments as well as those who had never seen a viola before. Ninja violist Greg continues to exhort his young followers across the nation to prepare for revolution.*

The wonderful people at Fischoff (Ann, Pam and Miki) organized a creative writing contest for some of our third grade classes. The fruits of their labors were amazing. Some stories were perhaps a bit gorier than might be expected of third graders, probably owing to general Halloween excitement, and some were simply inspired. Please enjoy these discreetly taken video clips of Alan dramatically reading one of the winners:
