Anyone can make music, everyone is creative, and we all have something to offer. Firebrand Concert Series believes that music can enhance people’s everyday lives. We believe that music is not only fun, but has the ability of transcending boundaries and overcoming challenges. For all music-lovers who have been curious about making music or have wondered how to unleash their own creativity, Firebrand invites participants to join in their Firebrand Community Music Workshop, which aims to bring together people of all musical levels to share in a fun-filled learning experience! Over the course of three days, Firebrand and community participants will explore music from many different angles. Firebrand members will lead workshops on ensemble singing, music basics, and improvisation and composition based on musical themes. There will be opportunities to collaborate with the Firebrand ensemble, and at the final concert all will come together on stage to share what they have learned and created. Whether participants are seasoned musicians or people who are just looking for something new to explore, the Firebrand Community Music Workshop will change the way participants and audiences hear music! Firebrand welcomes all to join in this community-building adventure.
