WELCOME TO THE UCONN ADULT LEARNING PROGRAM
ANNUAL MEETING HIGHLIGHTED BY GUEST SPEAKER
ALP members attending the Annual Meeting on June 7th were treated to a very special presentation by guest speaker Edward Cumming, Associate Professor of Music at The Hartt School and former Director of the Hartford Symphony. Providing a view of the world of symphonic music and the art of conducting an orchestra few of us previously understood or appreciated, Mr. Cumming (or Maestro as he is reluctantly but rightfully called) mesmerized the audience with his insight and anecdotes. It was easy to see why he is as successful at teaching as he was at conducting.

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, THINK ABOUT . . . . . . . . . .
Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to playing cards a few times a week.
One day when playing cards, one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me. I know we've been friends a long time, but I just can't think of your name. I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is."
Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared. Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?"
We could use more help. If you would like to "give something back" to our Adult Learning Program in return for all that you've received (or are about to receive), please visit our Committees page.
