    Community Drum Circle - CANCELLED

    Cancelled - next planned date is Sunday, May 31

    Join Winchester Community Music School and First Congregational Church in Winchester for a fun, family-friendly, intergenerational hour of music-making. Bring your own hand drum or other hand percussion instrument if you have one—we will have extras available as well. Come celebrate community and life through rhythm and music. Drum circles are a great way to help reduce stress and enhance creativity. They provide a social gathering that focuses on cooperation and collaboration. It's noisy, it's cathartic, and it's fun! Come to play, to listen, or to clap along. Everyone who comes and participates has something to offer, and any level of experience is welcome. The April session will be facilitated by WCMS faculty member Carl Puglisi.

    Free admission. Held in Ripley Chapel at First Congregational Church, 21 Church Street, Winchester.

    CANCELLED - Americana Slow Jam

    Join us for an acoustic evening of Americana classics – blues, Bluegrass, and classic hits that twang! This jam session offers a great entry level experience for those who want to learn how to play with each other in a jam setting, as well as being appropriate for more accomplished or advanced players. Songs are projected onto a screen to help you follow along, and host Steve Latanision will be on hand to help with chords and scales. We'll start with 20-30 well known Americana genre tunes to choose from (including Angel from Montgomery, Old Joe Clark, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Friend of the Devil, and Rider). You can add your own favorite song if you bring a legible lead sheet. Note that this is an all acoustic evening – bring out your guitars, banjos, mandolins, and fiddles. We're also on MeetUp!
