August 2021 Meeting

Our August meeting will be on Saturday the 7th at 2PM. This month, we’ll be at Dawn and Ed Dougherty’s home, 2685 Ridgeville Rd in Prospect Hill, up Highway 86 north of Hillsborough. Their phone number is 919-801-2846 if you get lost or need directions. Ed and Dawn have two large dogs as well as a tiny but spunky cat, in case you have allergies or issues with animals.

We’re planning to meet outside for the safest gathering possible, but if the weather is uncooperative — if it’s raining or unbearably hot — we will move inside and spread out as much as possible. We ask that only vaccinated people attend. We won’t be sharing snacks (although you can still bring your own snacks if you want) and we certainly won’t be sharing flutes, but hopefully we can all enjoy some time sharing music again in a safe environment.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP via email, private message, or via the Facebook event so that we will know how many people are coming and can set up the space accordingly.

As we’re getting back into a routine, I’m planning to feature a flutemaker and recording artist as we always have. Then we’ll do some facilitated playing activities. As always, if you have a song to share, whether it’s a traditional tune, an improv piece, or a jam with you and a few friends, we look forward to hearing it. If you just want to hang out and listen, that’s cool too.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any feedback regarding the flute circle. I look forward to seeing you on the 7th.
