Jazz and Pop Recital

Some of our KMTA students presented a wonderful Jazz and Pop Recital this Saturday, October 15, 2016 at the Grand Lakes Presbyterian Church on South Fry.  The performances included pieces from some popular movie sound tracks such as, “Star Wars”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “The Entertainer”, etc.  The students enjoyed preparing for this recital as much as the audience enjoyed listening to it.  Great job KMTA teachers and students!
