Summer Flight School Retreat 2019

JULY 18-21, 2019

All current and past students of Flight School are¬†invited to attend an in-person songleading retreat on the Central Coast of California this summer. You’ll join a group of activated, inspiring Flight Schoolers from around the country for a weekend of singing and songleading practice. This is an irreplaceable and rich time of connection, song learning and opportunities to practice your skills from the course with other singers.

If you are not a past or current flight school who has been in a structured cohort I’m sorry this retreat is not available to you. Please join us on Sunday, July 21 for our public Big Sing event!

We will gather at a large and beautiful private home at a location to be announced (most likely near Santa Cruz) on Thursday evening July 18 until Sunday the 21st. Friday and Saturday will be focused upon skill building and practicing with Lisa and your fellow retreat participants, and Sunday will be a daytime retreat open to the public in which you will have the option to practice your songleading skills with a larger group of participating singers.

This retreat will be priced affordably to maximize the opportunity for your participation. If you are traveling from out of town we can support you in making your travel plans to the Monterey area and likely find you a host with a local Flight Schooler if you would like to stay in the area before and/or after the retreat. If you fly in you will want to look at fares to San Jose or Monterey. I hope you will join us for this very special weekend together.
