Urbana Free Library
Head to the Urbana Library for a celebration of blues, jazz, gospel, Rhythm & Blues, and soul music with young musicians from the Banks, Bridgewater & Lewis Fine Arts Academy!
The mission of the Banks, Bridgewater & Lewis (BBL) Fine Arts Academy is to enhance the musical knowledge base of young musicians by providing meaningful supplementary curriculum utilizing the genres of blues, jazz, gospel, Rhythm & Blues, and soul in order to participate in and contribute successfully to their respective school ensemble. BBL began in 2005 when two Black church programs combined to serve children of the community. Students from local schools and home school programs participate in this Saturday ensemble to further their musical development.
The Library is committed to making programs accessible for all. If you need an accommodation to attend a program, please let the Library know at least two weeks in advance.
