We have an exciting new event coming up for newcomers and frequent visitors to the Shehaqua grounds. This year, for the first time ever, we are hosting an Artists’ Retreat: Music Edition! This event is currently scheduled for July 24th - July 27th, between Week 1 and Week 2 of Family Camp, so clear your calendars!

Over the weekend, we will hear from Laurence Baer on composition, join Laurel Nakai in a songwriting session, and hone our soloing skills with Sebastian Jean. This prototype event is structured for any and all creatively minded people. Whether you are an aficionado or an amateur, there will be something for you. We will have a diverse set of tracks to play, whether you are interested in the lyrical side of music, want to brush up on your performance process, or enjoy singing with a group. Weather permitting, outdoor song sessions and games will be available in the afternoons as well. If you or anyone you know is interested, share this event. We hope to make this event educational and entertaining for all involved. We hope you’re looking forward to this weekend as much as we are!

When registering, you may choose to come for the full Friday to Monday program, just for the weekend or a single day. To get the full experience of the retreat, we highly encourage give yourself a three-day weekend and stay for the whole program if you are available!

(EDIT: Dates have been changed; the event is now in July instead of end of May.)
