June 20-23, 2018
in Vancouver WA at the Heathman Lodge
Washington and Oregon are collaborating to bring you a joint state conference for 2018. The last joint venture was 1997 so after 20 years we are excited to be working together again!
Our guest artist will be Hans Boepple from Santa Clara University, California. He is Steinway International Artist and Master Teacher. As an extra treat we will be featuring up and coming stars of our Northwest: Charlie Albright, pianist; Kenji Bunch, violist/composer; and Monica Ohuchi, pianist.
The location is a beautiful rustic hotel (but with all the modern amenities!) called the Heathman Lodge. It is located in the heart of Vancouver but the property sits amongst tall evergreens creating a private oasis amidst all the bustle of a city. It is the unexpected urban retreat!
Conference BONUS DAY – Wednesday, June 20, 2018 (starting at 1 P.M.)
Wednesday, June 20, 2018 will be a bonus FREE DAY! The joint conference with Oregon Music Teachers Association officially starts on Thursday, June 21, 2018 but WSMTA is kicking it off early at with honors recitals, organ workshops, registration, and the Washington Winners Recital. It starts at 1 P.M. and it’s a great day to bring friends, especially your non-member friends.
