What People Say about Friday Musicale

Best kept secret for music lovers. Awesome performers with a different presentation each month. Gives me the music appreciation class I missed in school. Love the midday concert. Convenient time and length. Parking is easy and free. Donation requested but not required so accessible to all. Look forward to it every month and takes priority over other activities.

Love Friday Musicale!  From the first time we visited with Jeff.  He gave us such great ideas and made us feel comfortable about planning our wedding.  It's hard to believe the day has come and gone.  Worked with Jeff for about a year on our wedding.  Our wedding day was amazing!  Thank you Jeff and Friday Musicale!
