In January, 2016 Music that Makes Community will return for our fourth consecutive year gathering over Martin Luther King Day weekend at the beautiful Bishop's Ranch in Sonoma County, CA. The Ranch is an ideal setting to spend three restful days singing, learning and recharging for the year to come while enjoying the temperate climate of Northern California.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore the ancient and new practice of paperless music leadership, sharing songs as people did before music or words were written down in a style that is fresh and engaging to people of all ages and levels of musical experience.
Learn practical skills and strategies for adding paperless song leading as a resource for congregational singing in home communities. Connect with like-minded leaders and find great resources for building a repertoire of songs that can be lead with groups of mixed ages and musical experience. Take a walk in the surrounding vinyards and enjoy breathtaking views of the Russian River threading through the valley. There's no better place to take some time to reconnect with the joy of singing in community, and we hope you will join us!
Attendees can register to stay at the Ranch and enjoy the delicious food prepared by the Ranch's chefs, or participate as a commuter. Take advantage of discounted early registration rates by reserving your spot before December 1!
