YAPI May Notes
A couple of things were particularly exciting about May YAPI. First, several adults and children from the community came out specifically to hear the YAPI entertainment which means people are really interested in the young talent in the area! Second, we welcomed two new performers: 9 year old McCoy Genfan from Martindale (which means word about YAPI is traveling!) and 19 year old Sharon McCully. McCoy did some great readings of some of his original writing and Sharon sang some original songs. Because there were not very many performers we were able to hear several songs by Dylan Meek (14) on piano. We also heard from Ali Engeman on piano.

You can support the YAPI community event by:

  1. Coming out to YAPI to perform June 2nd (if you are 19 and under)
  2. Encouraging or bringing a young performer to come perform at June YAPI
  3. Coming to YAPI to listen to the performers and being a supportive audience member
