environment for all community
members to make music, free
of judgment or criticism. It is
about pooling our talents and
sharing our knowledge to create
something greater than ourselves.
This musical experience is geared
toward all members of the
community, but I want to extend
a special invitation to the ASL,
deaf, and hearing-impaired
community members.
Come FEEL THE RYHTHM. If you are
interested in being a silent
observer, please come on and
enjoy the tranquility and healing
power of a drum circle. If you are a dancer/hula hooper/Native American flute player/artist/vocalist/photographer
/videographer/etc. then please
come support this artistic union
of minds and hearts.
