WASBE 2011 opens in Chiayi City, Taiwan

 The 15th International WASBE conference has opened in CHiayi City, Taiwan. And by all accounts, things are going really well.  Earlier today, there was a performance given by the Norwegian Wind Orchestra in front of a sold out 1100 seater concert hall. That's a little different than it was in Killarney in 2007 when ticket sales were on the weak side to say the least. I was supposed to attend the conference in my capacity as a WASBE Board member but alas, due to work constraints, I was unable to travel.  But Ireland is well represented by Danny Carroll (Clonmel) who will give a full report on his return.

If you would like to follow the action, then just visit the WASBE homepage. Here you can read concert reviews and follow the Twitter feed

Congratulations to WASBE and to Chiayi City
