    “Tradition represents a critical piece of our culture.They remind us that we are part of a history that defines our past,shapes who we are today and who we are likely to become “

    Though the Lecture Series Handed Down we have examined many topics relating to our area and in doing so have introduced the history of the music to new generations.
    We are aware of our responsibilities in using public funding and at
