Due to an unseasonably cold forecast, this event has regrettably been cancelled. The dampness is not good for the instruments and the temperature is not conducive to a successful and fun outdoor concert.
The new date for the J@MS performance will be May 13th from 11a.m. to 2p.m. at the Music Settlement.
Thank you for your understanding!
