In this episode, we sit down with Mike Stone who is the VAPA Coordinator for the Bakersfield City School District. He gives us an update on happenings in his district. He also spends a great portion of the interview explaining Proposition 28 on the November Ballot and how it would affect arts programs in all California public schools and why we should encourage people to vote for it. You can find out more about it at www.voteyeson28.org If you’d like to read the full text of the measure, you can read it here.
In our second segment, we hear from Jennifer McGill who is the Choral Director at Hanford High School as well as the Choral Representative for the California Music Educators Central Section. She will be sharing information about the 2023 California Choral Directors Association Regional and State Honor Choirs. Jennifer may be reached by email.
