DB Focus on Music – Alumni Making a Difference

Categories: DiscoveryBound, Youth Programs Tags:

 
DiscoveryBound’s (DB) Focus on Music program held in Seattle over Labor Day Weekend was full of energy and inspiration! Workshops and discussion groups brought to life the metaphysical theme, “Harmony in man is as beautiful as in music…” (S&H 304:20) The success of the Focus series is due in large part to A/U and DB alumni who participate as facilitators and chaperones.
