2021 SFFMC Memorial Day Virtual Workshops/Open Mic

2021 SFFMC Memorial Day Virtual Workshops/Open Mic

Memorial Day Online “Campout”
May 28-30, 2021

From SFFMC Vice President Hali Hammer:

Since we can’t get together in person, we’ll have a virtual get-together Friday night, plus four online workshops and an open mic each day on Saturday and Sunday (Memorial Day weekend). Workshops will be one hour each. Ed Hilton and I will host. If you want to share a song during workshops, you can put your request for a turn that day in that workshop in Chat.

We will also have breakout rooms available for folks to get together for whatever they’d like to do on Friday from 7 to midnight and Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 11 pm.

Please only sign up for one slot for the open mic. Each slot for the open mic will be two songs or ten minutes, whichever is shorter. We’ll accept up to 12 open mic sign-ups each day. Email Hali if you’d like to sign up for an Open Mic slot on Sunday night.  (Saturday is already filled.)

Everything will be done via Zoom. The Zoom URLs for the workshops and open mics will be posted on SFFMC’s Harmony email list. If you’re not already on the Harmony list, you can subscribe at https://groups.io/g/harmony. Or you can email me at halih@yahoo.com or Ed at ed_hilton@yahoo.com and we will email the URLs to you.

Hope you can join us on Zoom on Memorial Day weekend. Better virtual than never!!!
