What kinds of activities would you like to see happen at Freezer Jam 2014? Propose your ideas below.
In general, we are looking for ways to disrupt the usual workshop system of Freezer Jams. While we will offer the traditional beginner/intermediate instrumentalist workshops, we have set ourselves two goals for the workshops: first, identify workshops or activities that would appeal to the more experienced musicians; second, emphasize workshops that require groups of musicians to perform for and interact with each other through music in some meaningful way. We would love to hear about any ideas that you or your staff might have for workshops, and I would like to encourage you to think outside the box of traditional Freezer Jam workshops.
The D3 Fife and Drum Corps is happy to announce that it will be hosting Freezer Jam 2014 in Ann Arbor, MI on Saturday March 1, 2014.
Ann Arbor is situated about 40 minutes west of Detroit on the Huron River. As one of the cultural centers of Michigan, Ann Arbor offers lots of opportunities for fun beyond fifing and drumming. Some highlights include a science center that is great for kids and adults at the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum; fine art at the University of Michigan Museum of Art; art house films at The Michigan Theater and the State Theater; live music at The Ark; great craft breweries, like The Jolly Pumpkin, Grizzly Peak, and the Arbor Brewing Company; and unbeatable 24-hour diner food at The Fleetwood (do yourself a favor and get the Hippie Hash!).
The 19th Annual Midwestern Conference of Fifers and Drummers will take place on the campus of the University of Michigan at the beautiful Michigan League and Mendelssohn Theatre.
Like in years past, FJ14 will be equipped with some affordable hotel options and a free place to crash on the floor. More details will be posted as the event draws near.
