ENDICOTT COLLEGE – ON BOSTON’S NORTH SHORE
NILSON MATTA, CHICO PINHEIRO, CRAIG HANDY, MATT KING, FERNANDO SACI & MORE TBA!
Perched on the North Shore of the Massachusetts Bay, Endicott College is situated a convenient 20 miles north of Boston. Despite its proximity to the city, Endicott has a classic New England feel to it. Its oceanfront campus includes three private beaches on Salem Sound. We build time into our schedule so that participants can beach, bike, kayak, and/or visit the nearby towns of Boston’s “Gold Coast” — historic Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, and Rockport! Our classes will be held in the magnificent Arts Center (photo on left).
WEEK TWO: AUGUST 7 – 13: INSTRUMENTAL ONLY
COLLEGE OF THE ATLANTIC – BAR HARBOR, ME
