Lots of wonderful, live music is being generously presented by vocalists, musicians and volunteers, joined together for a wonderful cause.

These four scholarships will bring the total RKMS awards to 14.
Please join us for a great music experience, while also supporting our graduate scholarship recipients, their families and all families who have faced cancer.
