Keeping the SAMW Spirit Alive –

We may not be able to be together in person for music, but we can surely be together online for music — we have the technology!!  

Come one, come all, and join Lorraine and Bennett Hammond on September 14 at 8:00 for an “After The Dance” Jam Session, live streaming on their Facebook Page.  This is a fun, all levels jam — come to play, or just come to listen and watch!

And next, we are thrilled to announce the first in our Online Instructor Concert series: September 28 at 8:00pm, featuring Christopher James!  We didn’t want to wait another whole year to see and hear our fantastic instructors, so we plan to bring them to you live each month throughout the 2020-21 academic year.

Watch This Space…

…or visit the SAMW Website, because we are making plans!  Our Acoustic Music Camps may be on hold for in-person gathering and instruction, but that just means that we will be sharing our music and our community online, as much and as best we can.  Look for announcements for new offerings beginning in September.

The spirit of SAMW is alive and well at WUMB!!
