I'm just writing to let you all know that I'm still around, but not always online. I'm doing that job hunting thing because music's pay isn't quite making the rent.
Anyway, I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that indeed I am alive. I wanted to post a bit of information that if you don't know it already, well, I guess it would be news to you. (Don't mind me I'm in a wacky silly mood this evening.)
There is an international women's fraternity called Sigma Alpha Iota. Thay are a music fraternity, that if you can get the chance, join! I've been a member now for over a decade (we'll leave it at that:-)) and know of two projects that their Philanthropies have been working on for a while now. They are in the process of converting standard print music into Braille and bold note formats. Interestingly enough they call them "Braille Music Project" and the "Bold Note Project". Very original titles, but it gets the point across. I don't know if many of you realized the excitment many of the sisters have when they put together this project for us. So, if you get the chance to try or have tried either format, let us know and tell us how you like it or dislike it.
