Greetings to All,

The Still Waters Youth Sinfo-Nia of Metropolitan Atlanta will be holding its 22nd Annual Spring Benefit Concert on Sunday, May 6, 2012, 5 PM at the Holiday Inn Capital Conference Center located at 450 Capital Ave., ATL 30312 (near Turner Field).  Tickets are $15 for adult and $10 for student.  We are doing an exciting musical Tribute to the Real Red Tails of the Tuskegee Airmen.  There will be a good number of them present (along with their families).  As a part of the Tribute, the "world premiere" of a selection composed by yours truly will make its debut.  The title is "Into the Wind, Into the Air."  A great history lesson will take place as some of the Red Tails will share some of their stories.

Sinfo-Nia, an historical organization is truly making history.  The story of Sinfo-Nia is somewhat similar to that of the Tuskegee Airmen.  Sinfo-Nia offers opportunities for talented students to become more proficient on their instruments, fine-tune their skills and learn new ones, prepare for auditions into other programs, perform in public, travel throughout the state, country, and abroad, perform a variety of multicultural music, perform for audiences that usually don't get to see live orchestras, encourage children to play musical instruments (especially strings), and so on in a nurturing environment without audition (except for level placement; and many move up through the ranks at a faster pace) where everyone is welcomed who wishes to take part.  Sinfo-Nia has trained many.  Some Sinfo-Nia alums are playing in professional orchestras, chamber ensembles, and so on.  One is an ethnomusicologist with a doctorate degree.  Some have (and are) taking part in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Talent Development Program.  some current students are taking private lesson.  Some attend other orchestra camp (which we highly encourage).  Sinfo-Nia provides opportunities for students to become successful in the orchestral music world.
