UPDATE ON THE FESTIVAL: We had a good response but not the numbers we need to support appearing on a world-class stage. Therefore, we will not be moving forward with the festival this year, and all deposits will be returned.
The Music City Dulcimer Large Ensemble Celebration
An Old-School, 3 hour festival-style show featuring eight groups, each presenting a 15 minute set ~ not a jam, but an ensemble performance. To support our effort, each group must bring a total of 40 people, paying the package price (which includes all per- formance costs as well as lodging food and event support from the Gaylord Resort). The required 40 minimum may include any combination of either playing participants or “audience.”
“Dulcimer large ensembles are an emerging phenomenon, but can’t be served by computer platforms. We offer a radical new approach in an Old School Way! Our “platform” is the Opry Hall Stage!” - Pat Clark, Send in the Music
Like Performing Arts Educators, Nashville provides the most diverse and extensive choices in entertainment and embraces a commitment to Arts Education and instills a dedication to lifelong learning and a love of the Arts. It’s for these reasons and more that it was only a matter of time until we brought what we do to the Grand Ole Opry House.
