It was another great evening of entertainment as BlackCat Music Cooperative rocked the stage of the Star Theatre. Four groups from BCMC, The BlackCat School of Rock, The BC School of Rock Jr., The BCMC Youth Vocal Club and The Berkeley Sings Adult Vocal Group had the crowd singing along, clapping their hands and stomping their feet to songs they love and enjoy. Thanks to our students and families, Instructors Adam Kary and Jonathan McBee, the BCMC support staff, the good folks at the Star Theatre and the community for making this a very special evening.
