Your String Association has been very busy this term, with levels of activity reminding me of November 2004, when we held a large ASA Conference event in Banff and Calgary. Highlights include a report on the inaugural 2016 ASA Concerto Competition, and the recent 2016 ASA Conference in collaboration with Wilder & Davis and Emmanuel Euvrard (the Makers’ Forum). This issue also reflects your many activities – we enjoy hearing from you!

Please also welcome  Renee Perez Rodriguez, interim President, who will lead the ASA during my sabbatical year at the University of Alberta.

We also hope to see you at Music Conference Alberta, which will be held at the Banff Centre (October 20-23). Our younger members should consider applying to the 2017 ASA Concerto Competition, and if you want to become involved with the ASA this year, please let us know.
