Children through the age of 10 are invited to take part in a Fun Run in the Conservatory’s circular driveway, where everyone is a winner. The Fun Run starts at 9 am.
Conservatory students and faculty will perform during the event, which closes with a fun, family concert in the Conservatory’s Jane Carr Amphitheater.
