reCAP September 2012:

A Special Message for CAP21 Alumni:

Dear CAP21 Alumni,

As you are aware, as of this fall the NYU Program is finished. Because this program is ending, the position of Conservatory Director of the NYU Program no longer exists. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to our beloved colleague Michon Peacock for her years of service to CAP21.

Her serious dedication to maintain the high standards of the Conservatory is deeply appreciated and is now engraved in our history forever; guiding us as we look to the future.  We will all miss her compassion, as well as her tenacious spirit to tackle complex and difficult problems as they arose. She held a high spirit and dedicated resolve to seek the best outcome for all. She has always worked to serve everyone's needs with a spirit of fairness.

Every one of us has memorable experiences with Michon that are full of humanity and at times hilarious. As you all know, there is nothing better in this world than having a great laugh with Michon. She is a treasure and a faithful, dependable and loyal member of the CAP21 family.

To celebrate our times and our deep appreciation for Michon, we are planning a great party this fall at CAP21 on November 12th in her honor, so please save the date.

Enjoy the fall and see you on November 12th!.

Warmest Regards,

Frank, Eliza and Pam
