    We would like to extend our thanks to the many teachers who made SMAC-SANC 2015-2016 Graduation a success!  Thank you to our graduation chair, Nora Grafton, for organizing the event.  We thank Yoko-Acheson for, once again, conducting the teacher member chamber orchestra that supports our graduating musicians, giving them the exciting opportunity to play with live-chamber music.  Thank you to the parents and students for your participation, include record numbers of guitar students and the teachers for supporting your students and our organization by evaluating recordings and volunteering on the day of the event.  Many congratulations to all who graduated and participated!
