We want to thank the PTA for treating us to one of the best Pioneer Center youth programs we have ever seen, the musical trio of House of Waters. House of Waters incorporates elements of West-African, jazz, psychedelic, indie rock, classical, and world music into their astonishingly unique sound. The students and staff were extremely impressed with this group, and we recommend you learn more about them at https://www.houseofwaters.com/ . Every student from Teddy Bear to 8th grade was able to enjoy the performance.
