Musica Retreat 2016: Williamsburg, VA

Musica 2016 Retreat

Williamsburg, VA

 

Musica held its second retreat the weekend of August 12 – 14 in Williamsburg, VA.  Although the entire group was not able to attend, we did have every vocal part covered so rehearsals proceeded as planned.  We were able to rehearse in one of the hotel’s dining rooms, and thanks to a large family reunion convened at the same hotel, we had a built-in audience.  We made great progress in learning our winter music, thanks to Kylie’s and Maleah’s excellent leadership.

Although there are many fun outdoor activities easily accessible in Williamsburg, the 3-digit heat index made free time spent outside ill-advised.  It was necessary to find some place cool.  Hmmmm.  How about an outlet mall?  Or perhaps a wine cellar?  Great ideas!

 We shared dinner together at Captain George's on Saturday before heading home on Sunday.

 The retreat is such a fun way to learn music and get to know other members of the Musica ensemble.  We will continue this tradition next year, at some place closer to St. Mary’s County so more people can attend.
