Everyone loves playing their instrument first thing in the morning, right? Well, it seemed appropriate for our educational workshop.
Thankfully, we had no trouble getting participants involved for this one!
Clarinetist James Falzone led our first improvisation workshop. After some brief performance examples, he invited volunteers to come up and try some guided improvisation on their instruments.
We packed a lot in this day, with another workshop led via Skype by James Buckhouse (Dreamworks, Twitter) and an in-depth budgeting, sales and contracts workshop for the full group of participants.
To cut loose after a long day, we had our first open salon night, were participants were free to perform other pieces that they brought to the festival, or new collaborations that they worked on with others in their short time here so far!
