Soundscapes in the City

Stay tuned to our website, social media platforms, and email, as we continue to announce the upcoming programs dates and locations.

Upcoming Soundscapes:

Powell Gardens Festival of Lights

In light of Mayor Quinton Lucas’ recent announcement of new COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be performing this weekend at Powell Gardens. We hope to be able to perform there another time in the future.
