June 21, 1:00pm: BRAVO Summer Camp — Family Concert

On Friday, the final day of BRAVO’s summer camp, our students will present the repertoire they’ve been working on all week, including new collective compositions. This concert is aimed at our BRAVO families (so they can see what their children have accomplished and been enjoying at camp) but it is open to the public as well.  Maybe take a long lunch break and come by? 😉
