THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION IS CANCELED
Friends & Fans, unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Uptown Music Collective has been forced to cancel our 20th Anniversary performance slated for April 24th & 25th at the Community Arts Center in Williamsport.
Those that purchased tickets to this show will be receiving an email later today from the Community Arts Center with refund instructions.
Because this April is the official start of our 20th year, we will be pushing the 20th Anniversary Celebration concert to April of 2021 at the Community Arts Center to celebrate this organizational milestone at the completion of our 20th year! We plan to tribute the same artists in the same large-scale format featuring over 100 UMC Alumni on the CAC stage alongside current students!
These are unprecedented times. We don’t know what our world looks like a week from now – we don’t know for how long we’ll be apart. But we will continue to do everything we can to connect our community and our students with music.
Thank you for your continued understanding and support!
