President's Message

Greetings from the Alberta Orff Chapter!  We hope that your June is winding down nicely and that the lure of summer holidays is getting you through the last push of the year.  The Alberta Orff Chapter Board of Directors would like to wish you a wonderful summer holiday, whether that is spent vacationing with loved ones, engaging in professional development, enjoying the festivities of your hometown, or something else.

We would like to formally invite you to our inaugural Alberta Orff Chapter Banquet which is happening on September 20, 2014. Details of the banquet can be found on our website.  Ticket orders are due September 8, 2014 and are limited so please RSVP soon.  We look forward to an evening of socialization, dinner, and music provided by friends of the Alberta Orff Chapter.

We are also pleased to be offering again this year, in addition to our regular workshops, our very popular Make and Take and Stay and Play.  Both of these events are for members only.  The cost of the Make and Take is to cover materials for the manipulatives you will be able to make and take back to your classrooms and the Stay and Play is free of charge.  We are also introducing some exciting changes to our Children's Day format and will announce these changes in the fall.

Registration and brochures for these workshops and events will be available in late August.

Mark your calendars:

Wishing you a summer of fun and sun,

The most important parts of any year are the workshops.  Chapter members and guests gained new insights and inspirations thanks to another great succssions of clinicians.
Another successful year of workshops included:
Brian Hiller & Don Dupont
Wendy Rae
Sharing Day

National Conference was held in Halifax last April.  You will have the chance to read all about it in a future edition of Carl Orff Canada's Ostinato.  

Hometown Hero Bob de Frece wrote the song, Sing From Your Heart to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Carl Orff Canada.
A new feature of the Alberta Chapters involvement with local music teachers included two events that were for members only.  Both were free - with the exception of the cost for materials at the Make And Take - and were a lot of fun.
