  • Studies have shown that attending a music concert and listening to live music yields a much greater enjoyment to the listener. It also has a much greater ability to reduce stress than simply listening to a recording.

If you choose to attend, your soul will thank you!!!

If you’d like to attend, stop by the media center to sign up.
