    We were so lucky to attend Classic Rock at the Regent last night.
    The MPM Orchestra along with accompanying rock musicians delighted the audience. Vocals were fantastic.

    We visited the camp when they performed with the local children’s choir. The students are amazingly talented and the camp itself including the instructors is such a treasure to have in the County!
