Helping People Connect to Each Other & the World - Through Participatory Music Making 8:30-10:30 (Bring your own coffee & snacks)
This will be our time in using percussion in learning timeless principles for modern society of living, working, and playing well together. BRING A PERCUSSION TOOL: maybe a drum, rattle, metal pot & spoon?
Believing life is richer when we communicate, cooperate, and collaborate with one another and with the world around us, Greg Whitt will facilitate a program designed to creatively connect people in ways that are joyful, engaging, and good for us. This program is actually hands-on philosophy about how we can live, work, and play well together in community, only they're cleverly disguised as music, and they're delivered as interactive and engaging fun.
