Nov. 17, 2019, we mourn the sudden passing of Terry Head, dear friend and colleague, thoughtful and patient teacher, superb musician. From 2009 to 2019, Terry was a much respected and loved member of LFM faculty, teaching piano, organ and handbells, accompanying soloists and choirs and coaching chamber groups. Funeral details.
Many thanks to our Faculty and 120+ participants for a wonderful 42nd annual music camp. We look forward to hearing their feedback and planning for next year, August 9 – 16, 2020. Registration usually opens in March, announced in our e-newsletter, Facebook and Twitter.
Excited to welcome back many coaches from last year and introduce Joeann Argue teaching Indigenous music, Ambe! Ngamowin! Come and Sing!
