Here are some comments from people who have attended The Woods in the past.
It was great! My first visit. Seemed well organized.
…Warmth, inclusive & fun! Newbies felt warmly welcomed & included.
…an extremely enjoyable experience with a wonderful sense of community and support.
There was a magic to this past year’s Woods. Cannot put my finger on it, but it was a really good vibe.
Can’t wait to come again!
A spectacular experience…
It was a fabulous Woods! Congratulations and many thanks to all the effort that was put into providing us with a wonderful experience.
Loved, loved the music, everywhere all the time.
Staff concerts were wonderful.
The amazing community of people. So supportive. So open. As a first timer, I was immediately welcomed. That was the best part.
Evening concerts, performance circles, opportunities to converse with musicians, the warmth and friendliness of participants and staff, the opportunities to meet new people.
I think the variety in the program, the beautiful surroundings, the chance to hear very good music, and meet some wonderful people.
I would have to say the jams and the music everywhere. It was wonderful.
Singing with people.
Tune jam, playing before meals.
The classes. The teachers were excellent and the students attentive.
