Here’s some good news for Chicoans who like a fine drink to close out a bad or banner day: you don’t have to make it yourself anymore. No more digging around the fridge for an olive, muddling your way through, well, muddling, or begging a friend to come over to your hopefully-stocked home bar.

Do you remember how the recorder, that whistle-like instrument that produces clear, sweet sounds, felt on your lips? Do you remember the way your small hands navigated the finger holes as you learned to play the most basic songs? And do you remember the pride you felt when you mastered “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”? Just as it was when you were a young student, music is an integral part of any child’s education.
