A few months back, you might remember reading about Sunburst School of Music, Alex Stanton's then-budding music-instruction school. Stanton had just released an album with his current band, Townsppl, as well.
Tomorrow (Sat., May 10), Stanton and Sunburst are celebrating their grand opening. The school, on Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill, is already open, and representatives say it's already taken on over a hundred students. At tomorrow's event, students will perform, as will instructors (including Stanton and My Cardboard Spaceship Adventure's Mikey Meiers, among others).
The even takes place from 3 p.m.-7 p.m.; it starts with a performance from the Sunburst Rocks Band and continues with performances by other students, some as young as 6. At 6 p.m., the Sunburst 7 Band — that's the instructors — will play a set of its own, featuring songs written by students.
Sunburst is located at 5843 Forbes Ave., on the second floor. More info: 412-475-8280
