Circle of Music Saturday, August 12 - Friday August 18
Learn from the Masters!
This year, 2017, we will be joined by Reggie Harris (Concert Saturday and Sunday - Monday for workshops) and Kelley Hunt (Tuesday - Thursday).
Come join us for a magical week where we build a music community. You will be welcomed, accepted, encouraged, and challenged to grow whether you start as a beginner or are polishing skills. From the generosity of the workshop leaders to the support of the other participants who are taking risks along side you, join the opportunities to improve your musical abilities and decide how you will take your music back to the world.
The week starts with an inspiring concert. Each day begins with chapel, followed by workshops, and optional afternoon activities of classes, singing, teaching, creating, playing and learning. Other options include the beach, naps, walks or all of the above. The evenings have more opportunities to create music in song circles, coffee house, talent/no talent shows and anywhere else the spirit hits you including porch sings and jams. Let the ocean waves create new rhythms, the cry of the seagulls –new melodies and the spirit of the week – new lyrics.
