A full house at the Highway Christian Church in Sidney was on hand to hear the budding talent of students from the Peninsula Academy of Music Arts (PAMA).

PAMA owner Diana English says the event was for family and friends to see how the students have developed during their time at the academy. The afternoon featured vocal, guitar, piano and wind instrument performances.

“It’s a year-end performance by the students,” said English, adding they have a Christmas recital as well as various smaller events put on by the instructors.

Parents, said English, often submit video of the student performances and those can be found at
