Bringing Music to the Community

We believe in cultivating a sense of unification and equality in our community. And we do it by providing the community with access to music.

Community Music Events

Our community events are free and open to the public. Our hope is that interested community members will come out to the events to support our students, enjoy the performances, and appreciate the musical talent.
