Great to hear all the news – many thanks.
Very curious about LOLA (Claudio, please do let me know /when
you might need alpha/beta testers) – and congrats to Brian for the
pending release of EchoDamp! I am looking forward to the Windows version!! J
One small correction – the ConferenceXP masterclass in
Brazil was between USP and Barcelona. We did test extensively between Brazil
and TCU previous to this, but on the day of the event I was actually in São
Paulo and did the masterclass from there. It was great to meet Tereza Cristina
and the rest of her team and to work with our Spanish colleagues.
All best and regards to all,

Hello all -- Here is my best attempt to capture
our meeting last week. Please feel free to reply with
additions/corrections. Also, those cc'd I believe are not in the
Performing Arts Advisory email group. Let me know if you would like to be
added (it's fairly low traffic). It was great to be with so many of
you in person, and I am particularly pleased with the increasing interest in
international collaborations! All best. -- Ann
