Bring a lawn chair, your Sacred Sound instrument and a smile to the Drum Circle at the UR dome in Black Mountain, NC. We start our circles at 6:30 p.m. in the green space between the dome and the labyrinth. The 4th Saturday of each month, from April through September, we’ll gather to share traditional Lakota songs, generate creative beats, and send love, light, healing and gratitude to our beautiful Earth Mother.

AmiciMusic is a chamber music organization based in Asheville, NC and Baltimore, MD, dedicated to performing the highest quality chamber music in intimate venues and non-traditional spaces. We are committed to breaking down barriers between performers and audiences by setting up a more relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts and through informative talks about each composer’s life before each piece is played.
Now in its 19th season, Pan Harmonia offers a mosaic of concerts, community outreach and educational residencies and enjoys taking its music out of the concert hall and into spaces all around the community — from art galleries and historic churches to prisons and homeless shelters. Its musicians believe in social justice through arts access and enjoy bringing high-quality performances to audiences of all ages and socioeconomic strata. Directed by flutist Kate Steinbeck, Asheville, NC’s award-winning chamber music repertory company has been nationally recognized for its artistic excellence and creative vision.
This is an experience that touches the heart and soul – not to be missed!
