Regular Seating: $10.00, Students $5.00 & Seniors $7.00

December 17, 2009 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

The Maverick Sound will host the school’s First Annual Talent Contest.  It will be an opportunity for everyone to show their support for talented singers, dancers, musicians and comedians hoping to convince a few faculty/’celebrity’ judges and a cheering crowd that their act deserves the most popular vote!

Tickets: $5.00*

* All proceeds from these events will directly benefit the respective Fine Arts program and the Maverick Sound will donate 10% of the admission proceeds from both of their events to the Florida Youth Orchestra’s Music S.T.E.P.S. program –  “Symphonic Training & Education Program for Students.”  The program provides at-risk children, in grades 2 through 5, an instrument and music lessons from professional musicians at no cost to either the families or school system.
