Lenny and Julie Erb have enjoyed the musical arts their entire lives. From growing up with families that encouraged musical learning on various instruments such as trumpet, flute, piano, and guitar, to continuing to experience and enjoy performances at local concerts, music continues to be a large and enjoyable part of their lives. They wish to continue to support others' involvement in music so more people experience and enjoy the wonders of music for years to come.
