Winter GrooveFest 2019

SAVE THE DATE! Our next student performance experience, Winter GrooveFest, will take place on Sunday, December 1, 2019. This is going to be a much-expanded version of our first recital that occurred in June, so I hope everyone is ready to celebrate our awesome young people that are turning into terrific musicians and performers.

Not only will the students be prominently featured in groups, but there will be a few surprises as well. This is not your average student event!

This will be a ticketed event, more info TBA.
