Yellow Bird Holiday: a Steel Pan Mini-Retreat for Women Presented by Calypso Connections
If you are looking for a unique experience to uplift your spirits, learn something new, connect with like-minded women, and feel a sense of renewal and relaxation, this may be for you. Hands-on musical activity is a wonderful way to create collective energy and feel part of something larger than yourself. Pan is perfect because it is really easy to play and it sounds good! Through listening, practicing, improvising, eating, daydreaming, and learning together, this mini-retreat will put a lilt in your step and boost your overall sense of well-being.
Jennifer Cohen has been teaching pan since 2006. She is passionate about creating opportunities for groups of all ages to experience the joy of making music together, because she believes that authentic human connection builds understanding and helps make the world go round.
