Over 450 students from six middle schools and five secondary schools will combine at Prospera Place to perform a special piece of music called Kyiv, 2022, written by famous American composer Brian Balmages and conducted by guest conductor Dennis Colpitts.
After the performance, anyone in attendence can visit a vendor fair while music from a variety of student bands and choirs plays. Local artisans, crafters, and businesses will be present and donate a portion of their proceeds from vendor sales to the fundraising effort. Student artwork from across the district will also be on display.
