WOW!  What a weekend we just had! – SEE “UPDATES” Page for Darrell’s Report

2013 Music Industry Weekend at Bosch Baha'i School

2013 Music Industry Weekend at Bosch Baha’i School

In eleven years of Music Industry Weekend, our Saturday night show was perhaps the most professional presentation yet!

That’s not to say that past years weren’t fantastic, they were, but THIS year had a special quality that is hard to compare. The participants performed with such skill that it took my breath away several times.  This was a stellar example of collaboration making a product greater than the sum of its parts.

I want to thank our presenters for their efforts:
Thank You Chuck Thrapp for hosting our song circles and making even our most novice performers feel appreciated.
Thank You Russ Salton for laboring into the night to record and mix tracks for our participants.
Thank You Alan James for your skillful dissection and reassembly of our stage presence.
Thank You Robert Gillies for sharing songwriting techniques and pushing us to do what songwriters do, right now.

And Thank You to our participants for contributing your talent and spiritual energy to our 11th annual gathering.

I have about 800 photos to transfer from our camera and much much much more to share, as soon as I can unpack and get things put away. I will be back soon!

This is going to be another fantastic gathering! I have already heard from several “first-timers” and that always brings new “spice” to the mix!
