Youth Band Jam

If you are 5 or 7 or 9, or if you are a teen or young adult, or if you have ever been a part of the Čoček Nation / YAMMS / Mlado Selo EEFC camp youth ensembles, join us! If we have tunes folks remember from summers and Golden Festivals past, we’ll play them! If it’s time to learn something simple and new, we’ll do it! Bring an instrument and your voice and we’ll make some Balkan music together.

Sarah Ferholt currently performs with Zlatne Uste Balkan Brass Band, and teaches in the New York City public schools. She is also an MCAT certified teacher of Alexander Technique. (Photo credit: Reuben Radding)
