performing one or two songs from memory.  The cost for Federation Is around
$15 and the deadline to enter and pay is January 14.  All students will need
to be working with a teacher and an accompanist.  The songs have to be
chosen from the Federation Bulletin or music list.  The younger categories
choose one song on the list and one song not on the list.  The book will be
at the Information Table for you to look at.   Events include singing,
piano, music theory, any instrument.  This is always a great way to learn
and improve as a musician.  Each student is evaluated with written comments

gold cup-which is a trophy!  See Dan Updegrave, Sally Doyle, Abby
