My daughter was part of it, she is in 5th grade. I wasn't happy with the outcome of the event. Next year probably they can organized it better, and maybe the kids can play more songs, and not just 1each. The high school kids were great don't get me wrong, but it looks like they put it together last minute.

We had a lovely time. It was interesting to see the progression of skill level as the program went on. The last piece was the most fun. It was terrific!
