[Video] King Music Festival Showcases Student Talent and Celebrates Community

The PAC theater and courtyard came alive on Friday, May 11, for the first King Music Festival, which welcomed over 14 bands from area schools, including five from King, and culminated with the headline act, The Funky Dawgz Brass Band. Eliza Heaton '20 joined the King Jazz Combo during the evening (see video below), along with performances by US Faculty Ian Lear-Nickum and several student bands. The evening also also included food trucks, games, and face painting.

The Festival was organized by Sam Gleason '19, and supported Project Music, a non-profit after school music education program that provides free lessons and instruments to Stamford residents.

Sam adds, "We were very pleased that we blew past our goal in fundraising for Project Music! The festival was a huge success! We will have official numbers on how much we raised coming out soon. I also want to thank The Funky Dawgz Brass Band for an amazing performance, all of the different bands that came out to play, everyone who showed up to support Project Music, and administration and staff of King School for the support and resources to make this event happen!"
