YEA! and The Cadets are excited to announce a the return of the weekly webinar series, Hoptalk hosted by George Hopkins! Hop is the CEO of Youth Education in the Arts and the Director of The Cadets since 1983. This special weekly broadcast will cover The Cadets' design, USBands judging, biographical tidbits and stories, C2 activity, insight to the challenges and ideas on band shows, drum corps, instruments, adjudication and much much more. Some sessions will include a special guest, some will be on location, some will center on band, some on drum corps, and some will discuss the workings of non-profits.
Hopkins will share materials and then take questions from the audience. We hope that these sessions will fall on the same day each week but that is difficult with rehearsals, meetings, indoor and travel.We hope for these sessions to be presented over the entire year including the summer.
The first episode of "Hoptalk" will be Sunday, February 19th at 8pm EST. Sessions will be LIVE on The Cadets Facebook page, as well as on Hopkins own page! Yes indeed, simulcast is the plan! All you have to do is tune in! More info will be forthcoming.
