Our imagination of late-weekend summer hours just before admitting you need to think about the upcoming week

Take a Sunday stroll down Main Street window shopping along the way — on the 300 block alone there’s

Around 4:30- 5p (after the band has warmed up, though you’re welcome to come earlier), ease your way into the artPARK — maybe you bring a picnic — and spend an hour or so listening to PomARTS Jazz Ensemble.

Announcing this year’s musicians!

Please imagine a little drum riff with a few raspy saxophone notes and a definitive chord or two from the keyboard —

  • Katey Hardesty, director!
  • Ally Casey, Grace Hawthorne, Brooklyn Ranalli on trumpet!
  • Brynna Kirkpatrick and Hannah Kavanaugh on woodwinds!
  • Jake Kundu on drumset!
  • Sheldon Stotts on bass!

speaking about WHAT?

Talent is one thing. Business skill another. Here, the POM wears the hat of incubator, providing an opportunity and encouragement to bring young creative passion to bear on the hard work of developing business skills.  

always needs to be a WHY

Making community space for creative youth > creates room for creative youth to imagine a future adult place for themselves in our community. How about that for a tangle of words? Larger point: Music brings us together.

call to ACTION

Come out. Bring someone young. MUSIC is a bug we want our kids to catch.
