Summer music at Westacres

In the summertime, we regularly get requests from musicians to use our music room for a performance. That way we have, in the past, hosted a variety of singer-songwriters, students and classical ensembles. These are intimate, small-scale concerts.
Two groups have asked for our music room this summer, and we gladly invite you to join for what certainly will be very enjoyable and amazing performances.
