Plus, local educator and artist Nanette Constant has designed a glass mosaic to reflect Philip Simmons’s book. Participants will work with the artist to make this project. A raffle will be held at the concert on May 21 and May 22 to win the mosaic. All proceeds will go to the ALS Association. Space is limited!
