Hello Dear Ones,
We hope that you’ve had a good summer and are enjoying the fruits of your labors. We were able to get into the mountains a lot this summer, which is why you haven’t heard from us in a little while. We’re back in town and ready to start school and to roll out some fun, fall offerings.
We’re excited to announce our 2019-2020 World Music in Paradise Concert Series Line-Up. See all the details below or online. The series starts at the beginning of September with Glen Velez and Loire Cotler offering a concert on Saturday, Sept. 7th and workshops on Sunday, Sept. 8th. Glen Velez is the teacher’s teacher of frame drumming and we highly recommend this event and the workshops! David (along with Dylan Fixmer and other friends) will get the opportunity to sit in and play with Glen and Loire during this special performance (Glen’s only show this year in Colorado).
