Carson High School is set to host two admission-free music events that will not only “B Sharp” but also showcase student talent.
“Music programs within the Carson City School District carry a time-honored tradition, and Band-O-Rama and Choirpalooza are the pinnacle of effort and training our students have invested throughout the school year,” said Kelly Ehrenfeuchter, music director at Empire Elementary School.
