First of all, thank you again for taking the time to nominate your students for the 2019 Nebraska Ambassadors of Music European tour. An informational meeting was scheduled for this Saturday, April 14th. Due to the predicted poor weather conditions, this meeting will need to be postponed. Because of the short notice, I am asking if you would please let your students know about the meeting being postponed during your rehearsals tomorrow (Friday). Please let them know that they will be contacted about the new date for this meeting soon. Thanks again for your help and good luck next week at District Music Contest.

UNK HONOR BAND/CHOIR CANCELLED
The following email excerpt was sent out to all directors earlier this afternoon:
With the continued deterioration of the forecast and a strong potential for significant snow and wind, we have decided to cancel Monday’s Honor Band and Choral Clinic.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but the primary concern is the safety of you, your students, and any family members that were planning to attend the evening concerts.
The cancellation will be announced via UNK social media, the UNK webpage, and distributed to local news outlets throughout the state. It is my hope that this information will reach all affected parties well in advance of potentially traveling to Kearney. If you can pass along information of the cancellation to your students and parents as well, we should have everyone in the loop and avoid any unnecessary travel in these dangerous conditions.
We will not be rescheduling the Honor Clinic due to the challenge of finding an appropriate date that will work with your school schedules and university calendar.
Thank you for your understanding with the timeframe of making this decision. The most important thing is to ensure the safety of all participants and the cancellation of the Honor Clinic is certainly the most prudent option when faced with dangerous travel possibilities.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be in touch next week.
