OUR THEME THIS YEAR
"I Got Rhythm"
Yes! You say, "I Got Rhythm!" because we all are able to feel rhythm: it permeates every melody and every harmony we hear. It is also present everywhere in God's amazing creation from multiplication tables to the sounds of the waves at the beach. Yet finding the exact words to describe it is difficult.  This summer, we will not try to define rhythm, but we will certainly help you feel it! Come join us and experience a wide variety of tempos, ranging from long, slow, peaceful pulsing, all the way to fast, exciting, and exotic rhythms.  This summer, it's all about the beat!
