Thank You To All Who Attended A Taste of Autumn!


Texas Music Partners would like to thank all our guests and volunteers who supported us by attending the Taste of Autumn food tasting event and silent auction fundraiser on November 4th.  We had a lot of fun trying the different foods, bidding on auction items and listening to the fantastic sounds of the Jazz Daddies featuring Patton Elementary’s own Art Martinez on tenor sax and flute.  There was a special appearance by Mike Melinger from the Austin Jazz Workshop on soprano sax.

Thanks to our guests, we brought in enough money to fund 240 students for our Music and Technology and Thinking Out of the Box courses! For more information on these courses feel free to check out the course info here.
