"As teaching artists, our work together focuses on sharing with our students the idea that there are many different ways to share a story, in effect, to share their own inner creativity in a way that suits them best." says Susana. "Our family night concerts provide a wonderful opportunity for families and friends to come together, share some great music and stories, even a European style puppet show - and remember that you don't always have to plug something in to have a good time!"
