Music and Stories of Resilience: Performance and Open Mic for Teens

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free & Open to the Public
Composer Amanda John

Teens: First we’ll play music for strings by composers from under-represented cultures, all expressing their resilience in the face of hardship through their music. Then, we want to hear from you! Bring your instruments, bring your voices, bring your questions! You can share your music, get feedback, and ask about recording, live shows, or anything else about the life of a professional musician.
