The group has performed in multiple venues and events including Arts Alive, Black Box Theatre, Roosterwalk, BGCA’s National Youth of the Year competition, Oktoberfest, National Youth of the Year Dinner in Washington, DC and many more. In late 2012 the orchestra released its first demo CD: “Where Soul Meets Steel”.
