Music for Mia

Please join us for a fun, family-friendly event, and help us beat childhood cancer!  FSM students of all ages are invited to perform in this benefit concert.  

This event is held in memory of our dear friends’ daughter, Mia McCaffrey, who passed away at the age of 6 on March 17th after fighting rhabdomyosarcoma (a rare soft tissue cancer).  Our first “Music for Mia” was held last year and raised over $20,000 for her family while Mia was undergoing treatment.  This year, 100% of ticket sales will be donated to Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer, an amazing organization that is trying to raise $200,000 for pediatric cancer research in Mia’s honor. 

FSM students will perform between 2:00 – 3:00 pm, followed by performances by FSM faculty members.  To perform, register below or with the front desk by Monday, 11/6.

Halloween Howl

PumpkinOur first event of the year is a favorite among our students!  Donning their Halloween costumes, students perform for each other in a very casual, kids-only environment.  This is a drop-off event, but parents are always welcome to stay if you or your child prefers.  Too nervous to perform?  Dress up and join us in the audience!

Every year we hold a food drive for Operation Hope, so please bring a non-perishable food item to donate. (The food drive will continue in the lobby through November 13th).
