All participating schools have been notified.

Meet a Musician/Accent, April 9 2020, Susie Park, violin and Silver Ainomae, cello
All current ticket holders will be notified.

It’s in the Bag! 2020 Fundraiser, April 28, 2020
We will be rescheduling this event for Summer 2020.

Efforts will be made to reschedule this event.  Ticket holders may elect to make a tax deductible donation, bank the value of tickets to a future Meet A Musician/ACCENT program or request a full refund.
