We have no other way of saying it.
We’re simply bursting. A large new-student class plus above-average retention means that we have more students in our music facilities than ever before. We have more students in combo than ever before. We have more students in Concert Choir than ever before. We have a student chamber orchestra for the first time ever, and we’re seating 30 violins in the Webster University Symphony Orchestra.
I have some happy headaches, though, as I try to juggle various nearly-full studio spaces while also finding adequate room for additional master classes and the like.
Since the alternative is unused space, I’ll revel in these little challenges and find a way!
