Saturday Family Jam Sessions are now online! Junior music aficionados spend Saturday mornings singing, playing, and preparing for a lifetime of music appreciation as expert artists guide them through a variety of genres on Facebook Live. Ideal for ages 4–8.
These new sessions will be free and open to the public and we will be issuing full refunds to all current buyers. If you’re in a position to give, donations will go a long way toward helping us continue to employ local artists and offer programs like this one virtually! Donations can be made online at strathmore.org/support-us.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday mornings on our Facebook page!
