Congratulations Sofia! We are so proud of you!
Founded by five-time Grammy nominee Michael Feinstein and now in its eighth year, the Great American Songbook Foundation’s annual Songbook Academy is the only high school intensive in the United States focused on the timeless pop, jazz, Broadway and Hollywood standards that have come to be known as the Great American Songbook. The 2017 Academy, sponsored nationally by the Central Indiana Community Foundation’s Efroymson Family Fund, is scheduled July 15-22 at the Songbook Foundation’s headquarters, the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel.
