We are so proud of our girls for rocking the River Stage at Penn’s Landing on Saturday, May 16th for our finale concert, Purple Girls Rock. SCG was joined by the fabulous Brooklyn-based singer Emily Danger. Thanks to Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy for awarding SCG an inaugural “Performances in Public Spaces Grant,” which enabled the girls to perform at Penn’s Landing. What a wonderful way to end the 2014-2015 program year!
