Most of us are engaged in that "long winter of practice" as Noel calls it, but it is not too early to start thinking about concertina camp this summer.
Noel Hill Midwest will be returning to the Cincinnati area at a new site run by the Episcopal sisters: Transfiguration Spirituality Center in the northern suburb of Glendale OH. There are 22 acres of manicured grounds, air conditioned private rooms with private baths and a chef to prepare 3 meals a day for participants.
Noel Hill Midwest camp will run from Sunday July 30th to Friday noon August 4th. Contact Linda Mann at: email@example.com
to reserve your spot.
Glendale and adjacent Wyoming, OH are beautiful, old neighborhoods in northern Cincinnati with tree lined streets and not far from the hustle and bustle of the Tri-County Mall shopping area. About 40 minutes north of the Cincinnati/Northern KY airport. (Southwest Airlines is supposed to initiate service to Cincinnati July 1st 2017 which may facilitate flight connections.)
The Midwest camp is generally populated by friendly folks who go out of their way to make newbies feel at home. We can usually coordinate Sunday rides from the airport to save on shuttle fees. Noel brings his usual intensity to camp but a general feeling of comradery helps alleviate the "shared suffering" as we try and keep up with Noel's instruction. There is a vibrant Irish Trad community in the Cincinnati area and week highlights usually include an evening session and often a concert by the Master.
A great learning experience for all levels of players and we are excited to have a new, accommodating venue this year..
