The first half of each workshop will focus on how indigenous tribes used animal “medicine” or “wisdom,” and how—through Arvel’s guided meditation—individuals can learn to find and connect with their power animal. He promises the music circles to be a "fun and healing time to connect to the Creator with movement and rhythm."
As there's a lot of local interest in Arvel, we're encouraging pre-registration by April 1 for the following Friends of Ganondagan-sponsored events:
- Saturday, April 9 from 1-3 pm, “Animal Totems and Drumming Circle Workshop”
- Thursday, April 14 from 7-9 pm, “Animal Totems and Flute Circle Workshop”
To register, or for more information, visit www.ganondagan.org/programs/ArvelBird.html or call
And, as an extra incentive, our Friends of Ganondagan (FoG) members receive a $2 discount off the ticket price for Arvel ’s April 17 violin and flute concert with the Rochester Chamber Orchestra (David Fetler conducting) at 3:00 pm at the Hochstein Performance Hall. To receive this discount, FoG members should call Julie Doescher at the RCO Box Office, 585-442-9778. Arvel will premiere The Path Made of Rainbow, a work he wrote for the RCO and the Bach Children’s Chorus, which describes the Paiute story of how the Grand Canyon came to be.
Friends of Ganondagan is making some of Arvel's recordings available for purchase. Click here.
Hope to see you!
