Tonight we had the first orchestra practice and parent’s meeting. The kids are already sounding good! Thursday is the opening play-in for all group violin and cello students. We will start with another parent’s meeting.
I’ve updated the look of our blog. The main reason was so we could have a wider page, which will be nice on the Calendar page. I’m now able to embed a calendar from Google, which will be easier to update. I’ve posted the Orchestra, Ensemble and Group Lesson dates for September and into October (those are tentative).

I am a poet, translator, and professor of literature and creative writing at Mississippi University for Women, where I direct the Low-Res MFA in Creative Writing, the undergraduate concentration in creative writing, and the Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium. I have published three books of poetry, Barrier Island Suite, Time Capsules, and Landscapes and Architectures, as well as a collection of translations of the Belgian poet Paul Snoek, Hercules, Richelieu, and Nostradamus. I live in Columbus with my wife, Kim Whitehead; son, Aidan; and dog, Aleida.
