Message from the President
In just over a month, our 2019 Spring Festival will be here! The SDFG Board is excited to see this event come together after months of hard work. I can't wait to see our guest artist, Leone Buyse in recital, as well as our featured flute choir! I hope to meet many of you there!
We also are hard at work planning our 2019 Summer Camp at Green Oak Ranch. Diana Morgan will be joining us this year as our guest artist, which is incredibly exciting. She will be perfect to work with all of the students, no matter what age or experience level.
One last thing - we are in need of volunteers for the Spring Festival. We can't have a successful event without your help! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're able to assist on April 14th (even 1-2 hours is a big help!).
