There will be live music in small combo, ensemble and solo performance formats, a local food truck and a community drum circle at 1:30 p.m. Families can bring their lawn chairs or blankets. Tours will be provided, as well as an instrument “petting zoo”, coloring sheets, make-and-take activities and an art project.

WHY: Nearly 700 students and 30 teachers were displaced due to the permanent closing of Metrocenter Mall in late June 2020. PCM learned of the closure in June after using the space for its school and music studios since 2011.
EXTRA: PCM is currently offering both in-person lessons and online private lessons and classes. Masks are required and social distancing is practiced, as well as several other notable ways to keep students safe and secure.
