There are staff concerts on both Friday and Saturday evenings; over the course of the weekend you'll have the opportunity to hear our entire staff in concert.
The 2018 T-Shirt Design
We had a really special T-shirt design for 2018 courtesy Lansing-area artist Dennis Preston and "the Bard." We figured Romeo and Juliet made beautiful music together, but who knew it was on banjo!!
We'll post our 2019 T-shirt design as soon as it becomes available.
