Community Performance Groups through the Uptown Music Collective

At the Uptown Music Collective we strive to give our students as much real world musical experience as possible. An important part of that experience comes from our Community Performance Program, which is comprised performance groups that are formed each year, performing from September through August. These young performers are known for their musical abilities, professionalism, and reliability.

Best of all, by booking one of our groups for your event, you’re supporting the educational programs that teaches them to perform at such high levels.
