First call:

Singtime Frolics
with guest artist Beth Wood


Our annual residential weekend in the Columbia Gorge, March 27-29 2020, has it all:  to make music and hear music, learn and teach, enjoy nature, and leave refreshed and renewed. And we are thrilled to announce that Portland artist Beth Wood will be the artist in residence, teaching and performing. Find out more about Beth on her site.

Tickets will be available starting on January 1. In the meantime, you can read up on Singtime. Stay tuned!

Radim Zenkl - coming Nov. 1

Radim Zenkl is an amazing mandolin player. He draws on his Eastern European musical tradition, but also plays jazz, traditional folk, progressive... you know, all those styles. And he plays them all very very well. In fact, he was the national mandolin champion in 1992 (did you know there was such a thing?)

Here's more about Radim with a link to buy tickets.
