Ten Grands by Michael Allen Harrison Foundation for Music Education. This is a recurring music tour of 10 grand pianos playing various musical genres which is held at different venues throughout the year. Its goal is to create music interest in the next generation. There is generally a kids concert that has school priced performances. Many local homeschool groups sign up for group tickets. Tickets sell out very early, so get on the Ten Grand email list or stalk the facebook page for tour dates and ticket outlets if you are not part of a group that has access to group tickets or wish to be a group getting group tickets. Our local concert is typically in the spring time, but it varies.
