for the 21st Annual WinterStar Symposium opens Thursday
at 6PM in the Hospitality House (Cottage 17), followed at 9:03 with
the Welcome Wagon Pot-Luck Party, where we’ll be drummin’
and jammin’ late into the night and greeting the late-night
arrivals. A great opportunity to make or re-make connections early
in the program!
There’s nothing quite like the late-night activities at WinterStar, the perfect indoor festival to break up those long winter months. We’ve set up cottages to host parties of different styles:
The Acoustic-Jam Cabin with Billy Bardo and Friends serving up songs and stories, ribald and sublime, and whatever else they and their friends bring with them.
The Space-Jam Cabin with Ron Slabe, Cap'n Chas & Friends to supply foot stompin', body wigglin', bootie boppin' good rockin' all night long to rock your world, whichever one that may be.
The Drum-Jam Cabin with the beloved Dennis & Linda Murphy the usual suspects Dave Hope and Halim El-Dabh. Don't forget to dress in layers, it gets hot in there!
Registration and Merchant set-up begins at 11:30 AM on Friday in the lower level of the Lodge and the Opening Circle is held at 1:30, with classes running from 2:00 - 6:15. Jim Donovan and YOU will perform in the main hall at 8:00, with the WinterStar Community Concert
