NFMC Biennial Convention
Federation Days at Opera in the Ozarks
Plans are under way for our Federation Days planned for July 19-22, 2017 at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks. Operas for this season include Marriage of Figaro, Susannah, Carmen and the children's opera Jack and the Beanstalk. Our National guest this time will be the National Recording Secretary Jeanne Hryneweike and her husband Richard. If you have ever attended, you will know it is 3 days of amazing musical talent with just a little bit of meetings. Missouri is sponsoring the Saturday Luncheon. We’d love to have a great showing. The performance auditorium is now air conditioned, so come and experience the talent your money is supporting! Reserve your room now by asking for the IPFAC rate! The hotel does get busy!….. We expect the invitation call very soon.
