Pretty In Pink Foundation

Because of your generous support, the GMS PINK OUT was a huge success.  We raised $313.50 to be donated to the Pretty In Pink Foundation.   

Pretty In Pink Foundation's mission is to provide financial assistance to uninsured and underinsured breast cancer patients with quality, life-saving medical treatment regardless of their ability to pay. 

Thank you for helping to raise awareness in our fight against breast cancer.

Drum Circle involves students playing hand drums and percussion representing various cultures around the world.  Each session focuses on students demonstrating both individual and collective skills with an emphasis on improvisation.  On this particular occasion one student was asked to demonstrate an improvisation solo.  Another student was then asked to join in with their solo.  Eventually all members of ensemble were performing a form of improvisational counterpoint which provided a highly spirited and exciting session.
