Now Playing:

Where Are They Now?

Our educational programs provide learning opportunities that contribute to the growth and development of emerging artists in our community. With the success of these programs over a number of years, we are fortunate to have a large group of alumni who have gone on to successful careers in music and beyond.

To celebrate these participants, our weekly “Where Are They Now?” segment allows us to follow-up with alumni, see how they are doing, and assess how the program has contributed to their success.
