Songwriter's Workshop
Next Session March 4

Jon Rounds, Jerry Breese, and Bruce Truitt (The Guitar Brothers) will facilitate a 6-session Songwriters Workshop every other Saturday, beginning February 18! Whether you’ve written many songs or are just starting out, you should find this workshop a valuable experience.

  • Participation is limited to 8 writers- ONLY A FEW SPOTS LEFT!
  • $210 total if you sign up for the whole workshop ($35/session)
  • Single sessions are $40 each (only if space is available) you must contact 3 Dots before the session you'd like to attend

The heart of the workshop is that song writers structure feedback they get from the other writers and the facilitators. So, as a participant you will be both performer and listener.

This is a chance to work with experienced writers and performers. You can bring half-done songs, ones that need some polish, or songs you just want to try out on an interested audience.

Más que mujeres! Lo mágico de florecer
Sunday, March 5
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Para conmemorar el Día Internacional de la Mujer te invito a que te unas a esta exposición de retratos fotográficos de grandes mujeres de la comunidad Latinx de State College. Será una tarde llena de la magia que nos hace florecer. “Donde haya un árbol que plantar, plántalo tú. Donde haya un error que enmendar, enmiéndalo tú. Donde haya un esfuerzo que todos esquivan, hazlo tú. Sé tú el que aparta la piedra del camino.” - Gabriela Mistral. Premio Nobel de Literatura (1945).
To commemorate International Women's Day, I invite you to join this portrait exhibit of great women from the State College Latinx community. It will be an afternoon full of the magic that makes us who we are. "Where there is a tree to plant, you be the one. Where there is a mistake to undo, let it be you. Where there is an struggle that everyone avoids, do it yourself. Be the one who removes the stone from the path." - Gabriela Mistral. Literature Nobel Prize (1945)
