Music Students Showcase at Imagine Cafe, in James Bay!

Mar 31, 2019 at 2:00pm

Check out our student showcase at Imagine: Studio Cafe, in James Bay. This is a sweet little space to hear and see up-and-coming musicians share some of their music. It’s very supportive and a great opportunity for students to practice being seen and heard in a very safe and warm environment, and for the audience, it’s a chance to see some brave young souls be in the spotlight for a few minutes and enjoy the taste of success and deepened learning that comes through this process.
