This past season the Music Center presented over forty outreach activities to area schools, including Ars Voce vocal quartet performances, guest artist performances and clinics, and instrument petting zoos.  Adventures in Music is part of our commitment to building community through music.  Through our engagement activities we help to light the spark of creativity that could change a child’s life.
