May 22 Mentor Fundraiser at Skrine Chops
PING! mentors organized and ran a really fun fundraiser at Skrine Chops on May 22.  Mentor-led bands, plus the PING! Latin Percussion group, led by Don Skoog performed.  The event raised over$2000!.  This money, in combination with a generous grant from the Oak Park Area Art Council will fund next year's mentor-mentee concert field trip.  We are proud of our amazing mentors!



Spring Showcase a Success! 
Beautiful music by all groups.  Here is just a sample of the talented young musicians.
