The Crystal Clear Guitar Ensemble, directed by Derwyn Browne, performs Monday, December 4, 2017, 6:00 pm at the Suwanee Public Library located at 361 Main St, Suwanee, GA 30024. The performance is sponsored by the Suwanee Public Library and Childbloom Georgia Northeast.
This is an annual community service project, bringing the spirit of the holidays to the city of Suwanee, and marking the Ensemble's third year of performances at Gwinnett Public Libraries.
The Crystal Clear Ensemble is made up of Morgan Blake (Mill Creek High), Elise Page (Mill Creek High), Jasmine Jones (GMST), Sarah Thomas (Mill Creek High), Maggie Mitchell (Mill Creek Hill), Ethan Norton (Middle School-Home-School), Mac Cremon (Peachtree Ridge High) and Jake Peters (Osborne Middle School). All are enrolled in the Childbloom Georgia Northeast program directed by Derwyn Browne. The group serves as the flagship ensemble for the Childbloom Guitar Program, and Crystal Clear has become an active performing group. Each year the Ensemble gains notoriety in the community and is increasingly subject of local interest articles and publicity. Crystal Clear has upcoming performances in December that include: St. Timothy United Methodist Church in Stone Mountain, GA, & Hamilton Mill Presbyterian Church in Hoschton GA.
The Childbloom GNE Program, operated by Derwyn Browne, is a comprehensive musical education program for children between the ages of 5 and 18, and is located at 3220 Gravel Springs Road, Buford, GA. The Childbloom method was brought to the area when Derwyn Browne founded Childbloom Georgia Northeast in 2011, but this musical program is also in use by educators throughout the nation. The program has grown steadily over the last 6 years with the addition of a high-level performance component for students who have achieved a specified level of mastery. Childbloom director Derwyn Browne expressed his gratitude in this way: "We are grateful to the Suwanee Public Library for their aid in our attempt to enrich the cultural life of the children we serve and the community as a whole."
