Music That Makes Community is excited to offer our first Intergenerational MMC Weekend on September 21 and 22, sharing paperless music and leadership practices with families at Kirchenwald in Lebanon, PA! Join Rebecca and Zachary Stevens-Walter (and their toddler!), and Paul Vasile as we explore the basics of paperless ('oral tradition') music making, learn new songs to enrich and strengthen intergenerational community, and reflect on ways to encourage participatory singing within our families and faith communities.
We begin with family dinner and a Community SING on Friday evening at 5:30 p.m., sharing songs of justice, freedom and peace from many traditions, languages, and cultures.
After breakfast on Saturday, we'll explore the basics of paperless ('oral tradition') music making, share new songs to enrich and strengthen intergenerational community, and reflect on practices that encourage participatory singing within and outside worship. The relaxed but thoughtfully structured day includes large and small group learning sessions, community art making, snacks and lunch, as well as worship services modeling how intergenerational community can gather.
We have reserved a group of 10 rooms at the camp for groups who would like overnight accommodations on Friday. Each room has 2 double beds and 2 single bunk beds and can comfortably sleep 4-6. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Click here for more information and photos of rooms at Kirchenwald.
Friday Dinner and Community SING Only (Individual): $40
Saturday Workshop and Meals Only (Individual): $110
Scholarships are available for individuals/families in congregations in the Lower Susquehanna Synod. Contact Paul Vasile in the MMC office to learn more.
