Ed White, Executive Director says “I’m happy to see so many teams both local and surrounding states participate in the showcase. Youth have been practicing for months for this opportunity and they will be bringing everything they’ve got. I along with the other teams make a conscious effort to help our youth achieve both in the classroom and in life. We provide great after-school opportunities for our youth and they earn scholarships not only in academics but in music.” To purchase tickets you can call Ed White at 502-905-2908.
