We are really enjoying the longer summery days, though some nights it’s a bit harder to get the little one to bed because we forget to come inside until dark, there are just so many outside adventures calling.
For June, we have four library musical outreach events (Olathe, Montrose, Fruita & Collbran) and The Embodying Rhythm Marimba Ensemble will be playing at the Grand Junction Farmer’s Market at the end of the month. We’ll play live in the NFV again with the marimbas in August (see our extended schedule here). The marimba album is coming together and all the ensemble tracking is completed!
Thanks to the women who made it out to drum at the end of May. Yay for music making together as women. We’ll gather again on Sunday, July 8th from 4-6pm details.
