The Friends Academy Song Circles

In the paradigm of how music has been taught and shared for centuries, we want to continue and foster this tradition in our community. Join us the first Friday of every month, from 5-6:00 pm in the Commons. This is an offering for our parent/adult community. Bring your acoustic instruments.  Play.  Sing.  Share.  Follow along.  Or we’ll follow you. Hosted by our very own Putnam Murdock.
