Dances of the Heart a Smashing Success!
On Sunday, February 12, 2017, CMSP hosted our 10th annual Candlelight Concert Fundraiser with internationally acclaimed cellist, Amit Peled, with Noreen Cassidy-Polera, accompanist. In addition to presenting a delightful evening of dances from diverse places and times, Peled also engaged the audience with historical stories and musical interpretations that made the compositions come alive.
Thank you to everyone who attended for making this another successful Candlelight Concert Fundraiser! Money raised will support scholarships for students and school programs.
