Sunday Workshop

Workshop participants will rehearse beginning at 10am leading up to the concert at 2pm

Journey West played with energy and warmth.  Their concert really did feel like a journey, a sonic invitation through time and space.  And it was great for our students and community to have an opportunity to rehearse and play with them; they made everyone feel welcome, regardless of ability.
