Timbre Drums is bringing the "AMAZONES", an internationally acclaimed, all-women drum ensemble from
Guinea, West Africa, to Concord NH to give a two-hour drum workshop, on March 4th, 2007.  This is the Amazones' first time in the US, and very first time in New Hampshire, so it is a unique opportunity have them come there to teach us, and we are very excited about it!  

The workshop will be held on Sunday, March 4th, 2007, from 2-4 pm, at the
Broken Ground School in Concord, New Hampshire.  The workshop price is $40.
If you would like directions or would like to pre-register, e-mail us at or call 603-735-5609.  Space is limited, so please
contact us to pre-register if you want to reserve a spot.  

The Amazones will be at Brandeis University as artists in residence, for the
week prior to this workshop.  To purchase tickets to their concert at
Brandeis on Saturday, March 3rd, contact the Brandeis box office by calling
