ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
MEL SARKOR-CLINTON is an Architect and 6th generation Yang T’ai Chi Ch’uan practitioner. Combined daily investigation of these paths over a decade reveals that approaching the ground of space, the fluid mind can release the body to a place prior to separation, form and action. He’ll meet you there ;)

Cello lovers will find new dimensions to love in the music of cellist Stephen Katz. His work joins the emotional resonance and refinement of classical music with the roots of rhythm and improvisation.
Trailblazing cellist and award-winning composer Stephen Katz has charted new territory for the rhythmic potential of the cello with the groundbreaking approach he calls Flying Pizzicato. The results are compositions and improvisations that juggle two or more voices at a time, making music that lays grooves, weaves tunes, and lifts spirits.
