Produced by Beat by Beat Press.

A frazzled Drama teacher sends a video message to her students from her home office, announcing that their production of Brushes With Greatness: The Dental Hygiene Musical has been canceled! She tries to hang up, but accidentally leaves the camera running, as she receives a phone call from the principal who tells her: without the musical, the drama program will be shut down! So the kids pull together to present a virtual original musical performance to save their drama program!

Concerts On The Patio: Sarah Levesque and Peter Zarkadas

+ More Info

Come sit on the patio on a warm summer night and listen to great music! This series is FREE however donations are welcome. We are trying to support local artists and get together safely to enjoy great music at the same time!

Sarah Levecque is a songwriter, guitarist who moves easily between the sturdy roots of American music. Influenced in equal parts by early blues, country, folk, and rock music.

Sarah’s 2008 release “Crooked With Me” is an amalgam of these Blues and Country styles.

“Sarah’s, See Me Come Around is equal parts sultry and whimsical, a smoky, bluesy fold tune that rolls with a sort of mischievous loll. It’s both easy going and solid, the sort of song you can just lose yourself in. Elsewhere on Restless Restless Blues, Levecque’s music moves at a slow, steady honky tonk pace. There’s an immense steadiness about these songs, but also a sort of undeniable force, like a slow-moving freight train”. -Victor D. Infante, Worcester Telegram News
