Much thanks to everyone who came out on this beautiful day for the debut of our latest bands: Club Soda, The Black Tides, Teens on the Run, Fourimaginations and Poisonous Flowers of the Night Forever. They totally rocked the audience at the Philip T. Young Recital Hall!
Our camp program this past week took place at the Victoria College of Art. This fabulous building allowed us to expand our camp program from 12 participants to 19. It was very inspiring to be in a space where art and creativity happens year-round. It gave the campers the energy and space to learn new skills, play music together and be loud!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners, donors, sponsors, volunteers and staff who helped make camp possible for this year – it definitely couldn’t have happened without you!
