Bring your Valentines and Support Giant Steps!
We are grateful to Adam Currie and his band for donating their talent to us for the evening. Adam has found a fan club at Giant Steps! Adam and his band recently came for a tour of our school, and performed forour students and staff. By popular demand , Adam came back and practiced with several of our students. A few of our students will be participating in the show, and everyone will be invited to participate in a final song. We are looking forward to what promises to be a fun evening.
