President's Notes

Dear GFMC members,

Please note that you must have all your historical information in the Vivace database before your festival in 2022.

I can’t believe it’s almost 2022! I hope everyone gets some well-deserved rest and relaxation!

Have Safe and Happy Holidays!

Leslie Kennedy, president GFMC

GFMC Festival Teachers Announcement

Dearest GMFC Festival teachers, I trust that all of your students' historical data is entered into VIVACE. If not, your administrators are encouraged to get that done as soon as possible so you can enter each of your students' upcoming Festival information. It takes quite a few "clicks" on the Vivace program for each student's Festival music to be entered so I recommend that you do it as soon as you are able. A big advantage is that if you've made a mistake on repertoire selection, Vivace will catch it right away. (I found I had one and was able to quickly switch out the wrong piece for a new one!) Beware that spelling and punctuation marks count when registering your repertoire information. Best wishes for a blessed holiday season and super successful 2022 Festival! - Debra Hughes, GFMC Festivals Chair
