It Meant A Lot to Our Audience

For our in-house outreaches, Scott Ainslie gave two 50-minute performances for K-8 students (with 300-400 students in each), and kept them engaged and interested the whole time. One parent who has come to many outreach events said that his was the best outreach she had ever been to at the Shannon Center.

At the public performance in our theatre, Scott spent time in the lobby before the show greeting people and spending some time getting to know them. He also came out at intermission and after the concert. This is something that almost never happens and it meant a lot to our audience.
