Prelude Reunion

Get Ready!

We’re getting the band back together…and you’re invited.

This will be a day of retreat and celebration. We are planning breakout sessions focusing on professional/personal development and rejuvenation.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Prelude without a performance.

Great news–Thaxter and Manon will be flying in to join us. We can’t wait to celebrate their humungous contributions in so many of our lives.

You’ll also be able to meet the new team (and the current Prelude students). We hope you will be able to join us for all or part of this special day.

It won’t be the same without you.
