For a few bucks in a donation, one can get a fine frito pie and listen to budding young Taos musicians,  tonight (Nov. 16) at the Juan I. Gonzales Agricultural Center, 202 Chamisa Road.

Donations benefit the tuition-free Taos Youth Music School.

Diners will be treated to the K - 3rd grade Sing Free Choir, violinsts, guitar, and youth choir. The final performance of the evening is by the Garage Band 101 students. 

Doors for the benefit concert open at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 6 p.m. In addition, concert goeers can buy raffle tickets for a Paul Reed Smith guitar and the winner will be chosen at the end of the event. 

The school's mission, according to its website, is "to nurture in Taos County youth a lifelong love of music and the opportunity to be empowered musically, socially and academically through the art of musical activities."

Teachers include former TYMS student  Harlan Kesson, singer-songwriter Tara Somerville,  guitarist Ryan Beckwith, guitarist and violinist Sarah Martinez,  violinist and singer Rachael Penn, singer  Jenna Paulden, and  opera singer Mark Jackson.
