IMS alumna Ava McCoy ’15 will open for Jay Stolar at The Gramercy Theater on 23rd St. in Manhattan on March 4 at 7:00 pm. This 750 seat venue will be Ava’s first big show in the professional music scene. 

While at IMS, Ava honed her musical talent under the direction of music teacher Ram Miles. She performed in the Rock Band, Jazz Band, and any other chance she had to share her singing and guitar skills on stage. According to Ava’s father, IMS Trustee Brian McCoy, “Ava was profoundly influenced by Ram. I think it says a lot about the  Arts and Music program at IMS that she has this exciting opportunity in New York City at such a young age.” Ava turned 16 in January.
