YAPI April Notes
It was another fun night at YAPI. We welcomed 2 new performers to the younger group. It is always fun to hear new people. The view through the windows behind the performers at Idlewild is a wonderful backdrop for the stage area. .

Thanks to Sherril Dubois, Kelley Shand and Maggie Cahill who put the YAPI notice in the weekly newsletters at the Wimberley Schools. Thanks to our reliable photographer, Stacy Clermont. Be sure to check out the YAPI photos each month.

YAPI April News
The video taken of YAPI in March is now edited and ready to be aired on the public access television channel in Austin. Producer Vicki Hartin chose the original compositions of each performer who writes so there is a lot of original material on the video. All the performances are really good. Thank you to all the performers for participating in the YAPI 2nd Year Anniversary event and video.

If anyone would like to volunteer to help with YAPI in May or any other month, or to sponsor an ad somewhere, please contact Brenda at BFreed1@earthlink.net or 512-847-1022. It would be cool if there could be one helper and one sponsor per month.

If you are reading this and would like to be added to the YAPI email list, or if you know of anyone who would like to be added to this list, please email your/their name and email address to BFreed1@earthlink.net with “add to YAPI Mailing List” as the subject. Brenda will send only YAPI email reminders and news following each YAPI.

Please encourage age 19 and under performers to participate in the Young Artist Performance Incubator. YAPI provides a safe and supportive environment for young people who want to hone their skills, share their talents and explore performing.

Thank you for your support of this community event. See ya’ll next YAPI, May 5, 2005.
