Intergenerational MMC Weekend at Camp Kirchenwald

Music That Makes Community is excited to offer our first Intergenerational MMC Weekend on September 21 and 22, sharing paperless music and leadership practices with families at Kirchenwald in Lebanon, PA! I'll be joined by Rebecca and Zachary Stevens-Walter (and their toddler!) to explore the basics of paperless ('oral tradition') music making, learn new songs to enrich and strengthen intergenerational community, and reflect on ways to encourage participatory singing within our families and faith communities.

We begin with family dinner and a Community SING on Friday evening at 5:30 p.m., sharing songs of justice, freedom and peace from many traditions, languages, and cultures.

After breakfast on Saturday, we'll explore the basics of paperless ('oral tradition') music making, share new songs to enrich and strengthen intergenerational community, and reflect on practices that encourage participatory singing within and outside worship. The relaxed but thoughtfully structured day includes large and small group learning sessions, community art making, snacks and lunch, as well as worship services modeling how intergenerational community can gather.

I'm honored to offer the final Hymn Sing of the Hymn Society's annual conference, using music and oral tradition leadership practices inspired by my work with Music That Makes Community. We'll gather at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri to explore the intersection of sacred song, the church, and the public square.

The festival is open to the public.
