Everyone agreed – Thursday was a long day, but a good one. “Two thumbs up,” declared more than one attendee when asked how they felt the conference was proceeding so far.
The day started with the General Session, the Keynote Address by Dr. Daniel Levitin, and the induction of the 2014 Hall of Fame Inductees – Carolynn A. Lindeman, John P. Paynter, and Benjamin Jepson. And if that weren’t enough, there were also two Poster Sessions to partake of, and a variety of conference sessions as well.
By the end of the day, most of the attendees were ready to relax, reconnect with old acquaintances, and meet new ones, which they found easy to do at the NAfME Welcome Reception at the Pegram Hall.
Entertainment was provided by the Maplewood Richmond Heights High School Jazz Combo.
