Salish Singing & Drumming workshops are FREE workshops that are open to folks of all ages and abilities - no experience required! Whether it's your first time or tenth time, you are welcome to come together with other folks to make music with instructor Russell Wallace.
During these workshops, you will be encouraged to embrace your inner singer as you raise your voices in song, learn traditional Salish drumming, and also hear the stories and histories behind these songs.
This is our last workshop of the season. Stay tuned to learn about when our next block of Salish Singing & Drumming Workshops are!
