Ben Slocum was our guest speaker today and he spoke about his venture with Beards Brewery (That's him in the background instead of the foreground). The friendly pooch in the front is Ava, his trusty sidekick. They began their brewery on Howard Street and have built it up substantially since their initial opening in 2012. His partner is Peter Manthei and they have built up an excellent business that is geared towards expansion and being highly sustainable.

Today we had Megan DeWindt of Crooked Tree Arts Center  and also Kevin Richardson from the Crooked Tree Arts Center School of Music.

Crooked Tree Arts Center is excited to respond to community requests to grow our music education program.  Why?

#1) We have the physical space.  Thanks to a generous grant in 2016, we have a new 900 square foot music studio space in the CTAC building.

#2) We have a talented staff member, Kevin Richardson, trained to teach stringed instruments.

#3) We have a long-standing tradition of music education through our 4 music performance groups:

  • Concert Orchestra (Students with 2 or more years of strings experience)
  • Chamber Orchestra (High school/college level strings)
  • Symphony Orchestra (High school/college level strings combined with local woodwind, brass and percussion players)
  • Crooked Tree Jazz Orchestra (Intermediate level woodwinds, brass, piano, guitar, bass and drums)
