FIREPIT SINGALONGS

CONTRIBUTE A SONG TO THE FIREPIT ORCHESTRA!

Rug up, grab your guitar, and come join the cacophony of musical delights at our under-cover, all-weather firepit. Contribue a solo, join in on a well-known chorus, shake a tambourine, or just bask in the glow of the wonderful atmosphere.

The Winter Mountain Fest was two days of pure joy! Singing was always important to me, but this event showed me how long such a joyful experience could last – it was quite eye opening.

TEAM MUSIC TRIVIA

Friday night starts with a light dinner, a casual drink, and some team music trivia. Whether you are a trivia buff, or merely contribute a question or two, music trivia ensures you get to meet some terrific people, spark some great stories, and make some life-long connections.

A safe and welcoming environment for all levels of singer, a great variety of talented presenters, with the added bonus of a music trivia quiz and firepit singalongs in the evenings.

DRUM CIRCLES

TAKE OUT ALL YOUR FRUSTRATION ON A DRUM!

Feel the power of three dozen city folk bashing out their year’s angsts on some animal skins in the name of art! It’s an incredible feeling to say the least!

The Mountain Fest feeds your soul by making music, meeting great people and having lots of fun. Very inclusive. The afterglow lasts longer than the smoke in your clothes!

Doug

To sing with a group of people from all walks of life in a safe and comfortable environment was terrific. The beautiful harmonies that each instructor teased out of the group brought goosebumps upon goosebumps. The happiness instilled in me through this experience has lingered for weeks.

Melanie

My life was changed forever at Mountain Fest; I stumbled upon it looking to sing with others and found gold. This weekend at the very least will expand your horizons both musically and socially and might just change your life; do it! 

Tim

  A great opportunity to share singing and moving in harmony. A opportunity to learn a variety of different vocal styles A great place to meet like- minded people.

I can’t think of a better way to discover how much fun singing is – even if you’ve never sung before. If you think you can’t sing but wish you could, this is the perfect place to start exploring. 

Andrew

A fabulous weekend for those who love to sing in company with others. Simple but perfectly adequate accommodation, sessions presented by top choir leaders, the chance to sing around the fire pit into the wee small hours, lots of good company. 

Sarah

It was a challenging and fun exploration of so many different types of music – it was so amazing what we were able to achieve and it really fired up my passion to do more.
