We’re well on our way to honoring two MTNA Foundation Fellows this year. $1000 has already been raised for Dr. Robert Shultz, and we’re now in the midst of our campaign for Diane Smith!

To contribute, checks should be made out to MTNA Foundation Fellow and include Diane Smith’s name on the memo line. Send your donation to Cyndie Caruth at 2105 NW Pleasant St., Ankeny, Iowa.

Special thanks goes to Diane Smith and the competition committee for organizing the event, and to Dr. Paul Kovacovic and Central College for hosting our competitions.

We also want to thank all the competitors and their parents and teachers. The MTNA Competitions are highly regarded in the music community. Participating at this level requires a rare level of dedication, hard work, and talent. We at IMTA are very proud of the level of musicianship in our state, and we wish all of you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
