Summer Reading Sessions

 

The MP is excited to offer our traditional Summer Reading Session. This year, because of the pandemic, we will have 5 OUTDOOR Summer Reading Sessions in the parking lot adjacent to L&L Music. The sessions are open to musicians who feel they can play orchestral music. Please remember there are COVID protocols in place for your safety.
