The Conrad O. Johnson Music & Fine Arts Foundation’s annual scholarship brunch and concert is back.
Enjoy sounds, brunch and entertainment by “Saturday Night Live” Trombonist Steve Turre, Guitarist Joe Carmouche and the talents of its Regional Youth Orchestra.
Proceeds from the event benefit The Conrad O. Johnson Education, Scholarship and Outreach Program which directly funds its youth orchestra. The nonprofit formed the youth orchestra to provide students from underserved communities with access to arts education.
The orchestra is comprised of students ages 10-18 from the Houston area, many of whom come from underserved communities. COJMFAF, as part of its primary mission, formed this orchestra to provide a rich, and extraordinary experience for students who otherwise might not be able to explore music on their own, and ultimately, reap academic benefits that have proven to go together with pursuit of musical and artistic excellence.
