Amplify your acoustic instrument

Joel Mabus

Each year, we bring back some old favorites, and add the energy of some new folks.

Doesn't this lineup look like a great afternoon of singing?

That's it! 14 workshops for one $10 wristband. (All students and kids 18 and under are free - just stop by the desk and pick up a wristband.)

(Yes, we increased the price of the afternoon workshop wristbands from $5. to $10. In the past, the two evening Community Sings partially subsidized the workshops. We made this move because Festival costs have gone up, because we wanted to keep tickets prices for the Friday and Saturday evening Community Sings as cheap as possible, and because we wanted to allow all school kids and college students (the next generation of singers and players) to attend the workshops free. Thanks for your understanding.)
