In the past, well known artists and ensembles featuring classical compositions have been presented also new works have been premiered. In 1999, a Jazz night was included featuring such greats as Gershwin, Porter, Ellington, and etc., in order to reach a wide audience in the community. High school students are encouraged to volunteer in concerts to earn credit for community service. In 2000, a web site was initiated.
