IMPORTANT MESSAGE re: CELTFEST SUMMER SCHOOL

After 12 years of uplifting and action-packed CeltFest summer events, we are not offering the summer school this year. Carolyn, the Exec & Artistic Director is pursuing her executive MBA and will be in residence at Queen's University, Kingston, and at Cornell University, New York during the time CeltFest would normally be in session.
We are taking this rare opportunity to regroup for a future year's summer festival, and making space for other projects.  Check back for word on more workshops, concerts and projects to happen this year, and also other CeltFest projects now underway. As always, please feel free to contact us if you'd like to be involved with these!
We are grateful for a dozen years of your support and CeltFest summer festival memories to date. We are working on a "CeltFest Volunteer Hall of Fame" page, to be up soon. We look forward to seeing you all at other CeltFest 2013 events.
