There are three types of events listed on our calendar:

  • MMC Workshops planned collaboratively with hosts around the United States and Canada;
  • Local Practice Groups led by presenters and participants from the Music that Makes Community network, providing opportunities to hone our skills and support one another in song leading;
  • Community Events presented by organizations affiliated with MMC for the benefit of the wider musical community.

Upcoming Events


    Virtual Summer Retreat

  • Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 01:00 PM through July 30, 2020
    via Zoom

    While in-person summer events need to be postponed for everyone's health and safety, MMC is excited to continue our work online through a Virtual Retreat from July 28-30, 2020. We'll gather each day from 1-2:30 p.m. EDT for interactive online singing and learning that explores:
    • Zoom Singing Toolkit - our MMC leaders will share what they've been learning about singing virtually and how we keep engaging body, mind, spirit, and voice
    • Singing and the Body - framed as a kind of musical/vocal Yoga session, Jazz singer and composer Chanda Rule will invite us into singing practices that reconnect, balance, and restore
    • Sharing Your Song - we'll offer tools to help you write your own songs and chants, and invite each other into a space of creation and song sharing. What song is within you that's waiting to be written?
    Each session will include follow up material - writing prompts, video content, and online spaces to share your questions, noticing, and wondering.

    REGISTER HERE!

    We're also excited to offer additional events you can participate in as your schedule (and time zone) allow, including:
    • Morning Singing/Centering and Fellowship (8:30-9:30 a.m. EDT/CDT; a second offering at the same time MDT/PDT)
    • Afternoon Open Source Conversations - we'll invite the burning questions, curiosity, and interests of the group to shape afternoon learning, singing, and conversations spaces (Times TBD)
    • Evening Singing/Centering and Fellowship (5-6:30 p.m. EDT/CDT; a second offering at the same time MST/PST)
    • Topic-driven 'pop-up' groups that gather around shared interests and needs
    Registration for the retreat is on a sliding scale, from $175 to $400 USD. Consider how many sessions you plan to participate in, then pay what is generous and affordable with gratitude for the time and skill of our presenters. Registration is limited to 35 people, so fill out the Google registration form to let us know you're planning to attend.

    Limited scholarships are available. Please contact Paul Vasile at paul@musicthatmakescommunity.org or (929) 266-4662 to learn more or if you have any questions.
