The Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park and local elected officials celebrates its inaugural 2017 piano program led by high school student intern Zoey Xu. Thanks to the generous donation of keyboards by Yamaha Corporation of America, five students, who had no/minimal prior musical experience, will be performing a recital (2-3 songs) on August 4, 2017.
