A Call to Music Teachers:
Young musicians at the 2020 Susquehanna Folk Festival
The Susquehanna Folk Music Society has presented the Susquehanna Folk Festival, a premier folk festival of the traditional arts, for the past two years. Our third festival, to be held on July 24-26, 2020 at Roundtop Mountain Resort in Lewisberry, will feature a festival youth band music program, sometimes referred to as a "Kids' Academy", coordinated by traditional musician Jane Rothfield.
If you are a music teacher and have instrumental students ages 6-16 who are interested in folk music, SFMS would love to tell you all about the Festival Youth Band so that you can encourage your students to participate! At the festival, young musicians will get together, learn several folk music pieces by ear, and then perform them on the main stage. Any instruments and ability levels are welcome.
If you teach students who may want to participate, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
