On Saturday, February 5 we gathered on Zoom for Region 15’s annual Leadership Day to learn from Michael Gellert. This year’s session was focused on Musical Leadership - but the program was open to everyone. The event was moderated by Region 15 Education Coordinator, Jean Schoenlank, and was attended by close to 100 musical leaders from around the region – as well guests from Region 1, Region 19, and Harmony, Inc.
Many thanks to Michael Gellert and Jean Schoenlank for an amazing morning!
