AFA presents Beyond Music Spring Luncheon
AFA (formerly “American Festival for the Arts”) will celebrate its partnerships with The Center for Hearing and Speech, The Lighthouse of Houston, and The Monarch School and Institute at the AFA “Beyond Music” Spring Luncheon.
AFA is Houston’s largest nonprofit provider of music education programs for young people. In 2015-16, over 2,000 students from 198 schools were impacted through AFA programs. As a proponent of community music making, AFA has partnered with the above organizations to use music in innovative ways that support the educational, social, and rehabilitative goals each of these programs promotes.
Highlights from AFA’s Spring Luncheon include musical performances by students and clients representing all three organizations. The winner of AFA’s annual Young Artist Competition, percussionist Joshua Gilliam, a senior at Cypress Falls High School, will also perform.
