Deann Marsh and Dan Nogar invite you to our MSA Songwriters Circle, which meets the second Monday of March, June, September, and December, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m, at 75 State Street in Portland. This small, informal group gives participants a chance to hear “works in progress” and provide constructive feedback. If you’ve never workshopped your emerging songs, give the Songwriters Circle a try – it’s a great way to test your creations on a group of like-minded songwriters.
The folks at State Street welcomes participants to use the piano in the meeting room. The group leader, Deann also invites members to contact her about the opportunity to play for the seniors who live at 75 State Street.
If you’d like to receive automatic e-mail or e-vite reminders of the Songwriters Circle, please notify Deann at email@example.com.
The group is open to non-MSA members as well, so drop in and invite a friend!
