Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheater is a non-profit organization that works to create a never-ending calendar of awesome events for the enjoyment of St. Augustine and surrounding communities. Saturday, June 21st was the first Gathering of Friends – Children’s Arts Festival that attracted more than 1300 attendees! The St. Augustine Amphitheater welcomed all members of the arts community to come out and showcase what they do best. Schoenhut Piano Company teamed up with our local retailer Olde Towne Toys to turn all kids into mini musicians for a day with our fan-favorite mini drum set, concert grand piano, ukuleles and guitars! Right next door to our booth with Olde Towne Toys, local talent Billy Buchanan showcased his company Persevere Entertainment Group and taught kids the inner workings of a recording studio and how hit singles are made!
After children received their CD’s featuring their own voices singing on a track, they headed right over to the Schoenhut sign and had a blast on our samples. All Schoenhut items are for sale locally at Olde Towne Toys located at 113 King Street, St. Augustine, FL 32084 – in the heart of the nation’s oldest city!
No St. Augustine event is complete without the appearance of our native pirates. These two stopped by to treat us to an awesome drum solo.
