The Hap'ning Place Singers Workshop and Holiday in Greece 2017

The beautiful Aegean island of Chios once again hosted The Hap'ning Place Singers Workshop and Holiday in Greece . This year we found our new "home" at Maria's in Ag. Ermioni which is near to several of the wonderful beaches on the islands. The singers work in the mornings and are then free to pursue various leisure activities. ( along with a little studying of their new Greek folk songs!) It is so wonderful to see everyone recover from work and travels and in just a week, everyone leaves with renewed energy. See if you can spot the before and after pictures!
