Happening ’Round the Bend
Upcoming classes, community events, and ensemble performances
Past and current students, families and friends, and community members who are curious about our Sound Scholars program are invited to this special family night with fun activities for all!
For any community to thrive, a cacophony of interests, needs, goals, and dreams — of all its members — have to be brought into harmony.
For most of human history, this work has been accomplished not through outreach or social media, but through the arts. Yes, through great and famous works — but far more through things like campfire singing and community Christmas pageants.
That’s because arts-engaged community members are not only making art, but building vital community assets like pride, ownership, trust, and a sense of belonging.
