FREE High School Concerts

In order to comply with Copyright laws, there will be no admission fee charged for High School music concerts this year. The good news...EVERYONE can come to any concert they'd like without having to pay. The bad news...our High School Music Departments are losing a significant source of revenue for their programs. If you'd like to donate to one or more of the HS Music programs, click on THIS LINK to support them!
