Dear Friends and fellow L2Ork and Pd enthusiasts,
I would greatly appreciate it if you would please distribute the following announcement.
The spring is in the air, which means it is time for the spring DISIS (http://disis.music.vt.edu) and L2Ork (http://l2ork.music.vt.edu) events. To start the season right, this past Friday L2Ork had a sneak preview performance at Roanoke College. More so, this coming weekend we are having a truly special series of events with the return of the Boys & Girls Club laptop orchestra whom we've been working with this semester. In addition, the spring DISIS event will also include guest artists and scholars Ron Coulter, Brad Garton, Peter Kirn, and Dave Phillips. The upcoming events include:
Thursday April 7 @ 3:30-4:45pm in DISIS presentation by Brad Garton
Friday 10am-1pm lectures in the Arts Armory by Brad Garton, Peter Kirn, and Dave Phillips (free admission)
Friday April 8 @ 7pm in Dumas Center (Roanoke, VA) children's concert featuring Boys & Girls Club laptop orchestra and L2Ork
Saturday April 9 @ 7pm in Squires Recital Salon children's benefit concert (an Arts Fusion event) featuring Boys & Girls Club laptop orchestra and L2Ork followed by a hands-on laptop orchestra demo session for kids and families ($5 general, $3 children/students/seniors, with all proceeds benefiting Boys & Girls Club)
Saturday April 9 @ 8pm in Squires Recital Salon benefit concert (an Arts Fusion event) featuring Ron Coulter, Brad Garton, Peter Kirn, Dave Phillips, and L2Ork ($5 general, $3 children/students/seniors, with all proceeds benefiting Boys & Girls Club)
This year we've also partnered up with the Virginia Tech Kids' Tech University program to expand our outreach to young audiences.

As if that weren't exciting enough, earlier this weekend we've made yet another public release of pd-l2ork (http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/main/?page_id=56) with even more cool features and fixes (changelog: http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/data/pd/Changelog). Our site has been also updated with the new promotional materials and photos. Yet, in the spirit of Steve Jobs' keynote speeches we've left the best for last. Stay tuned for more exciting updates soon ;-)
