Still openings for song workshop

It’s not too late to sign up for a song-writing workshop set for this Saturday (May 10) from 1-5 p.m. at the Fort Frances Museum.
The workshop, for ages 13 and up, will be led by Shannon Darby and Kenneth Kellar.

It is being sponsored by the “Friends of the Museum.”
Participants will work together to write music. The process will encourage them to co-operate, collaborate, experiment with creativity, and build individual self-confidence.
“Friends” president Duane Hicks said a few people have signed up but organizers would love to see more.
“It’s the perfect activity for musically-inclined college and university students who are home for the summer,” he noted.
Hicks added this workshop hopefully is just the start of “Friends of the Museum”-sponsored community programming.
The sign-up fee is $10, which will be refunded at the end of the workshop.
To register, call the Fort Frances Museum at 274-7891, e-mail sgeorge@fort-frances.com, or drop by the museum in person.
Those taking part do not have to have any prior musical experience, but those who do are urged to bring along their own instruments.
There also will be a snack break.
