Julian Bliss masterclass at Plum Senior High School

Local Masterclass Comes to Plum Senior High


This week, students at Plum Senior High were invited to attend a masterclass by world-class clarinetist Julian Bliss. It kicked off with a visit to Mrs. Loy’s music class where he gave students a sample of his work.
