We have an outstanding Youth in the Arts program for the 2017 2018 school year featuring residencies in music with the Huntertones, dance with the Dance Theater of Harlem, live musical theater, visual arts, concerts, and more. Pentangle delivers this programming annually to over 2,000 students at little or no charge to area schools!

Patrons will get a sneak preview of the 2017-2018 season, a tasty three-course farmto- table meal and a concert by members of the WUHS Jazz Funk Band.
Tickets are $100 per person a portion of which is tax-deductible. A selection of wines will be provided. For more information or to purchase tickets go to
