Jacksonville State University is the proud host of the 60th Annual State Conference of the Alabama Music Teachers Association. The association, with nearly 400 members, supports music education through competitions, festivals and workshops. The annual conference has been held at many prestigious institutions throughout the state.
President-Elect Dr. Wendy Faughn, JSU Associate Professor of Music, is responsible for bringing the conference to JSU for the second year in a row.
Presentations and student recitals make a large part of the conference agenda, but on the evening of Friday, June 8 at 7:30 p.m., guest artist Neil Rutman will give a concert, to which the public is welcomed to attend. Neil Rutman has a stellar performing career (neilrutman.net), and was featured at last year's World Piano Conference in Novi Sad, Serbia. The concert will be held in Mason Hall's Performance Center on the campus of JSU.
Tickets are $15.00 for the general public, and $5.00 for students.
