Guest Artist: Camden West 

We had a great time with Camden West. He is such a talented young musician...and a great person. We were blown away by his performance and generosity in graciously sharing the stage with our students. For those who attended, don't forget you can join the mailing list on his website to find out all about his music, merch and where he'll be next. Also, remember to pass the word around that these events are always open to the community at large, not just our students. Let's discover more new artists/music together!
