Dear Wade – I was at the Rochester Orff workshop yesterday…I spoke to you during the break, saying that I was absolutely captivated by your style and presentation and your songs. I continued to feel like that all day, and this morning I still feel that way. I hope very much that the WNYOSA chapter will act quickly and try to book you for a workshop here in Buffalo. Thank you for everything.
