"We have two workshops planned," Ulmer said.  "'Music IQ and You' presented by Patty Neeper of Trombino Piano Gallerie is scheduled at 2:30 p.m. Monday and 'Percussion in Motion' will take place Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.  Registration is required for these workshops."

Entertainment features Christopher Atzinger, National Federation of Music Club 2005 Young Artist on the piano, and soprano Brenda Atzinger Monday at 8 p.m.   The Westminster College Faculty Brass Quintet will perform prelude music before Tuesday evening's banquet at 7:30 p.m., and the evening will include a special celebration of the history of PFMC, which was federated in 1916.

Members from area clubs such as the Sharon Music Club, Schubert Literary and Musical Society of Oil City, Mercer Music Club, Lakeview Music Club, and Opus I Music Society will attend, in addition to representatives from other parts of Pennsylvania.
