Magellan Charter School, Raleigh NC

January 15 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Magellan Charter School, 9324 Baileywick Road

You never know when someone will catch fire, as I did at the sound of this music and its emotional power. I'll present two concerts here for K-4 and 5-8 grades, at 1:00 p.m. and 2:15 p.m., respectively.
