Winds and Waves Recorder Workshop


Join us for three days of music-making by the sea. You'll find the group to be a friendly mixture of first-timers and loyal repeat participants. Here we are in 2010 posing for our photo at the beginning of a downpour! And here are photos from the 2015 workshop.

The dates are April 30 to May 2, 2016, Saturday through Monday, with the faculty concert in the evening of April 29.

The location is Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, just north of Lincoln City, Oregon.

Faculty are Tish Berlin and Frances Blaker of the duo Tibia, Cléa Galhano, and Alison Melville.

Tuition is $270 and includes the faculty concert Friday evening.

Registration opens Monday, January 11, through Sitka Center.

For the third year, we are offering the Jeanne Lynch Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to a deserving applicant and will cover tuition plus $150 toward living and travel expenses.
