District5 is excited to return to the Little Flower Concert Series. Join us for an afternoon of beautiful music that explores the many paths one takes to “come home.” Inspired by the incredible true stories of composers in their search for truth, family, identity, country, and life itself, District5 brings together the music and passion that binds us all together in our search for what it truly means to “come home.”
