- provided 16 workshops or demos
- broadcast 10 Live To Airs on Radio Control 99.4FM
- provided over 2500 hours of rehearsal and teaching spaces
- recorded, edited, mixed & mastered for over 1600 hours
- secured over $77,000 of funding for new equipment
- purchased the live venue PA
- secured over $90,000 for operations and projects

(and all of that at an accessible price).

There's plenty more coming next year with Summer Concerts in the parks over January & February (visit Summer Social), our 30th birthday celebrations, SwampFest, shows, workshops, recording, rehearsals and more!
