FVA members are encouraged to attend an important FVA Business meeting on Thursday afternoon, 5:00 pm, in the Marriott Waterside Ballroom. The membership will be electing a new President-Elect and Middle School Chair-Elect.

Directors with students in the High School Men’s Choir should have given their students copies of the music for Clarion Call which was sent in an email in early December. The tracks for Clarion Call are on this website. Please be sure your guys know this piece when they arrive in Tampa. This is the first of what we hope will be many commissioned works by FVA and FBA.
