Happy New Year! We hope 2017 is a year of gentle growth and lots of musical inspiration for you. May we stay in our hearts and in truth in the moment and always return to love.
We had a full rehearsal for Musical Caravan with David Alderdice and Friends and it’s really exciting to be seeing the music take shape that we’ll be presenting very soon. See video. David has been hard at work picking tunes, putting together arrangements and creating an incredible set-list for this around the world musical experience. We do hope you’ll attend if you are in the area and inspired by new sounds and multi-cultural auditory travels. We have two concerts for your listening pleasure – one in Fruita, CO on January 20th and one in Paonia, CO on January 21st as part of the Blue Sage World Music Concert Series (tickets). We are also excited to be teaming up with the Learning Council to bring this troupe of fantastic musicians (percussion, viola, guitar, sousaphone, trombone, flute, marimba and more) into the local schools for musical outreach as part of this concert.
We have a Marimba Ensemble class for Adults on Sunday, January 15, 2017 from 3:30-5:00pm at the Embodying Rhythm Percussion Studio in Hotchkiss (aka the Drum Room) with Arlyn Alderdice. Sliding scale $5-$15 per class (alternative currency and trades encouraged). Please register by replying to this email or calling 970-872-4238. We’re looking into our schedule for February classes and will keep you posted.
