Our next Open Mic night is coming up on Friday, February 16th – only eight days away! There is still room to add your name if you are looking to perform. We have a movie theme on piano, clarinet soloist, saxophone melody and grooving on the drums. We also have two of our very own lesson teachers dueting – Lena & Paul!
