One of our goals with LukeFest is to build on the the funds raised from the Luke Rachwalski Memorial Fund so we could endow scholarships at the Chwyl Family School of Contemporary Music and create Luke's Legacy - a songwriting camp.
We are happy to say that we have the first recipients of Luke's Gift: Charles James Appleton and Michael Wilford. Both are 19-year-old musicians and songwriters. Congratulations to them both!
