‘Tis the season for live music! We are well aware that Thanksgiving has not yet taken place, but the holiday spirit begins to show everywhere right after Halloween!
Thus, Freeway students have been asked to participate in several community events surrounding the holidays and even beyond them!
First, we have our annual Vista Lights performance!
Vista Lights is a yearly event put on by the Vista Guild. ‘More than 90 galleries, shops, and restaurants open their doors to showcase their holiday treasures and delicious dishes. The Vista Guild also organizes live entertainment and performances to get attendees in the holiday spirit as the Mayor of Columbia lights the Vista’s tree at the corner of Gervais and Lincoln Streets’ (Vista Lights).
Our students will be performing outside of the Peanut Man on Lincoln Street from 5-9 PM. Students from ALL FIVE locations will be dropping by to sing some of their holiday favorites! Come bring the family!
Second, we will be performing at the Peanut Man’s brand new Chocolate Factory and Cafe!
The owner, Chris, has graciously asked that our seasoned student performers and teachers play in a regular music series at their new location every Friday from 6-8 PM! Each week will feature a different Freeway artist. Look at this thing:
This location off of Fernandina Road has A LOT to offer with a full food menu, and incredible chocolates/treats selections characteristic of the Peanut Man locations. From November 23rd through the Holidays, each Freeway artist will perform Christmas music, and then afterwards it will be a mix of popular covers and their own originals! Make sure to stop by this place and grab some food and great music!
