Make a Joyful Noise!

Lift your spirits with 5 - 8 days of musical adventure at Maison Quaker. Experience or talent not necessary--just a willingness to sing, play, learn or listen. 

Language of Programme: English

Using familiar (and sometimes unfamiliar) folk-songs, spirituals, and popular music of the 20th century, Jeff will lead us on a fun-filled five day encounter with music. Instrumentalists are encouraged to bring their instruments, singers their voices, and listeners their ears for an exploration of why music has the power to be simultaneously playful, happy, sad, angry, complaining, and inspiring. Prepare for a unique experience of musical sharing along with a bit of sight-seeing in the South of France.

  • Facilitated program from Sunday evening to Friday morning. The other 3 days are optional and can be used for sightseeing or just relaxing around Maison Quaker.
  • Facilitator: Jeff Dershinhttp://jeffdershinmusic.com/
  • Non-musical partners welcome. You may be surprised—you may enjoy it also!

The program cost will be 595€ (475€ for shared occupancy) and includes musical fun with Jeff Dershin, 5 nights’ accommodation, meals, (all but one lunch) and some sight-seeing transportation. The optional days are 92€ (68€ shared) per day and includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner. They can be used to attend market day in the medieval village of Sommieres, or to visit sights such as the Pont du Gard or Provencal attractions. Enjoy walking, cycling, bird watching, etc. And yes, there will still be music!

All are welcome, Friends and friends!
