For the past three months, 5PM Porch Concerts have offered neighbors in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn the performance of a single song daily at 5 pm from a distance along with other neighborhood musicians. Now, the music continues with the Summer Youth Program, in which musicians from the daily jam offer weekly porch lessons to middle school and high school students in the neighborhood. Students will have the chance to perform weekly outdoor concerts with instructors. For more information click below:
