STEP Holiday Concert

Join us at STEP’s 2017 Holiday Concert!

  • Saturday, December 16th 2017, 10am
  • George Street Church

Come check out some of the finest young string players in the city, as they showcase their talent and inherent love for music this Christmas season. From toddlers to teens, you’ll hear everything from classical to folk, and perhaps even some Christmas tunes! Rumour has it that a special visitor (wearing a red suit!) may pay us a visit :).

We’d like to offer a special welcome to all STEP Alumni students and parents, as this year marks STEP’s 35th birthday!!!

This show is for all ages, and admission is by donation.

Hello STEP Community!

As you know, we have a snowstorm coming in Рit now looks like the worst of it (with some serious winds) will be hitting in the morning just as we would be having group classes, so in the interests of safety we will be cancelling all group classes tomorrow.
The next STEP event is our solo concert next Saturday (the 28th).
We’ll see you then!
