Stanton's OMEA Convention Re-cap Monday, January 19, 2009
Stanton’s Sheet Music would like to thank all of our friends & customersÂ who stopped by our booth at the OMEA convention this past week. Our booth was extremely busy throughout the three day conference, and we felt very fortunate to beÂ part of such a great event. Unfortunately, we were unable to fly our Stanton’s balloon over the booth this year due to the strict regulationsÂ of the Columbus Convention Center–several of our customers asked about it. We would also like to thank Michael and Jill Gallina for allowingÂ Stanton’s to be part of their reading sessions. The sessions were absolutely packed,Â and unfortunately, we ran out of clinic packets each of the four sessions that they had. We would also like to sayÂ thanks to David Adamson and Terry WalburnÂ for their part in helping the exhibtors throughout the weekend. TheÂ Thursday night jazz reading session in the middle of the Hyatt atrium was absolutely fantastic! At least 800 people showed up in the bar lobby to enjoy cocktails andÂ to hear one of the best jazz ensemblesÂ put together. Stanton’s Ben Huntoon was in charge ofÂ organizing some of the top name jazz players in the state, and these guys putÂ some muscle behind the music to make the charts sound incredible. Every one of the Stanton’s employees came back to work today with enthusastic stories to tell about who they meet, who they talked to and how much fun it was to work the convention floor this weekend. We’ll see you in Cincinnati next year!
