Summer Camps were FANTASTIC this year! It was our biggest ever…
Our summer camps are off to a great start! Jazz Camp was last week, and Rock Camp just got started. It was awesome to hear how much progress the jazzers were able to make after only 5 days! Jason Moore’s superb teaching skills must have had something to do with that.
Check out the footage of us performing “I Am The Walrus,” plus a bunch of great photos from the big event.
