Sing & Play Festival 2024 Recap

Congratulations to everyone who participated in Sing & Play Festival 2024! Student performers, family and friend supporters, and faculty, staff, and volunteers celebrated music by and for each other in performances, sing-alongs, and jams throughout the weekend. This festival was a culmination of a full year of practice, learning, and growth, and a celebration of the power of music in our community.

Thank you! to the volunteers who folded programs, set up risers, served popcorn, and cleaned up so that everyone could enjoy a fun day of music-making. Congratulations to performers and the teachers and parents who helped them get ready for their big moment. To everyone who was in audience, whether in person or tuning in online, thank you for your enthusiastic support!
