2023 ~ Singing The Inspiration Of Ossabaw Island

Planning is under way for
2023 Singing the Inspiration of Ossabaw Island

April 20 April 23

The land as messenger of the music

Thurs. April 20 –  Sun. April 23 2023

with Gayanne Geurin & Elise Witt

We set off on our journey, arriving by boat. Our activities over the weekend will include:
morning meditation, chant and qi gong, making music with songs and improvisation, touring the Island, listening instructions for nature encounters, walking songs, vocal exploration, open space, being mindful of the human story of slavery and capitalism on Ossabaw Island…

…and gathering for delicious organic locally sourced meals by Chef Leslie Varnadore.

Elise and Gayanne will lay a framework for connecting with each other and the land/water as all of this offers a conduit to our creativity.  

Friday April 21 is Earth Day, an opportunity for us to bring full awareness to this beautiful piece of Earth.  Ossabaw Island provides a unique ecosystem to connect deeply with nature, the human story of this place, and the creative expressions that unfold.
