There is no finer way than to do than through music, a celebration of our culture and American way of life.”

Felice Twaddle, President of the Board of Directors at UCPAC added, “I am pleased that we are able to come together for a night of great entertainment to benefit those that were affected by the damages of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
