Your registration fee includes the following:
- 6 workshop sessions with renowned instructors, for all levels
- Jam sessions on both Festival days, with different jams for all skill levels
- 2 tickets for evening Concerts (one for each night, Friday and Saturday) featuring Festival Performers & Instructors
- a performance by the Colorado Dulcimer Orchestra (open to participation by any attendee)
- “Band Scramble” (open to participation by any attendee)
Question: What’s the difference between participating in the Colorado Dulcimer Orchestra and the Band Scramble?
Answer: Although both activities are open to all attendees (regardless of skill level), there are some differences between the two:
- The Colorado Dulcimer Orchestra consists of musicians (Festival attendees) who select specific music to be performed, and rehearse the music in the weeks leading up to the Festival. Sheet music for the 3-4 songs to be performed is available to participants before the Festival to practice on their own, and group practices may be held virtually before the Festival and/or in person during the Festival.
- The Band Scramble is completely ad hoc, with attendees signing up at the door during the Festival. Participants are assigned to specific groups. Group members themselves select the music (1 song) to be performed, and there are times allotted for practice during the Festival schedule. And anything goes! For example, ANY instrument is welcome, costumes may be worn, and the mood is playful.
The following are your Festival-related costs for items on the Registration Form. Other costs, like lodging and Pre-Festival Classes, are paid separately and are not included on the Registration Form or in the following list.
