Everybody knows that the King and Queen of Cheese LOVE to sing-in fact, they have mandated that everyone in their kingdom must sing while they are making their cheese and thus all their cheeses will be blessed with joy and harmony.
When the royal couple are not making cheese, they are frequently hosting in-house singing concerts with workshops. Of course, you are all invited to attend. (The next one will be November 19th – info at the end of this post.)
This summer, right before the wedding, Ricki and Jamie hosted a week-long Village Harmony singing camp at their home in Ashfield, MA. There were 3 leaders; Kathy Bullock taught Gospel music, Larry Gordon (the founder of Village Harmony) taught Shape Note and South African music, and Eva Primack taught music from the Balkans. The following pictures were taken by Christina Gabriel:
The camp itself was centered at Ricki and Jamie’s house, but the singing was done in a nearby church because of the lovely space and the excellent acoustics.
Although there was a LOT of singing during camp week, there was also plenty of time for play.
The culmination of camp week is always a concert. This year, (and every year) the church was filled.
