When asked why the Music Club is hosting this event Jane Griffen, Music Club advisor, said “We wish to enrich the lives of children thru music, to expose and encourage our HLGU students to teach music to children. This is a great community service for them and a fun way to help support the HLGU Music Club.” Money raised through this event will financially help the HLGU students attend the annual Missouri Music Educator’s Convention.
