District 99 students experienced an amazing day of hospitality and musical growth at Ithaca College today. After arriving to a delicious Panera breakfast and a freshen up stop at the world class IC Athletic Complex, students transitioned to the music building and experienced a 70 minute clinic with Ithaca College faculty including Dr. Steve Peterson, Dr. Elizabeth Peterson and Dr. Mark Fonder; students took a 45 minute campus tour of Ithaca College, gaining experience and insight into the college experience; students observed a convocation recital featuring a student saxophone quartet, the IC Faculty Brass Quintet, and the IC Trombone Choir. Finally, students enjoyed lunch in the IC cafeteria, enjoying some of the finest collegiate cuisine available.
Special thanks and shout-out to our hosts and organizers Steve and Beth Peterson, the IC tour guides, the IC music ed students, and the rest of the campus for extending the warmest hospitality imaginable. Even on a cold day we all felt warm and welcome!
