The RAMP Coffee house performance was a wonderful evening. All the students did an amazing job, and the setting could not have been better.During the show, the Inn on Church served coffee and scones, adding to the night.
Music brings out the best in all of us, and RAMP wants to bring this into everyones lives. This is the importance of the intimate “coffee house” setting. It gives performers a chance to really show who they are, and the passion that comes out in music. This is something that gets lost in the majority of pop music. This is the first of many “coffee house” performances under the RAMP name!
Here is the outline of each students performances:
Alex Leach – 8th grade – Fairport – about a year at studio
