Adult Musicians

An eight-day festival, the Creative Musicians Retreat is offered for composers, improvisers, performers, electronic musicians, choristers, and music teachers  who want to delve more deeply into their own creativity.  In 2016, the Retreat will be held on the campus of the Dublin School, in Dublin, NH from June 18-26.

The Creative Musicians Retreat, led by Dr. Caroline Mallonée, provides an opportunity for musicians over 18 to experience the rich curriculum, the innovative approaches to musicianship, improvisation and composition, and the community music-making long employed by Walden faculty at the School’s flagship Young Musicians Program.
