The students and parents learned a lot from Gabe in Nov.  We are fortunate to have so many wonderful students, teachers, and families involved in making music.  We appreciate everyone's hard work for the concert.  Students came from throughout southern Utah and Las Vegas.
Next year's regional workshop will be Nov. 7 and 8, 2014, at the Heritage Center in Cedar City.


Gabriel Bolkosky led a two day regional workshop for nearly
100 students plus a concert in Cedar City at the Heritage Center.
