This schedule is a work-in-progress, anchored by commitments from the Community Music Division of DePaul University School of Music and the Old Town School of Folk Music. Morning sessions may usually begin at 9:30 or 10 AM, for 3 hours. Afternoon sessions may begin at 1:30 PM or 2 PM, allowing for one hour lunches. Bolded venues and events are confirmed.
We have invited a nationally-known cabaret artist from the States to help lead our master classes and to be featured in a gala performance. This may require moving several evening events, which the schedule now reflects. Still subject to change!(updated March 4, 2018)
