A Letter From Ellis: Introducing ... NESR Online!

 

UPDATE ON MAY 14: SCHOLARSHIPS NOW AVAILABLE!

 

A very generous friend of NESR has donated funds for scholarships for NESR Online.

 

Four scholarships (of $150 each) will help defray costs for four Students. Scholarship recipients will still need to cover $150 for tuition. To apply, write an essay (of up to 400 words) describing why NESR Online is important to you, and how the scholarship would help you to attend. There is no charge to apply. Email your essay no later than May 21 to newenglandsongwritersretreat@gmail.com. You will receive an email confirmation within 48 hours. All applicants will be notified with results by May 25. The David Glaser Songwriting Scholarships for NESR Online are made possible by an anonymous donor to whom we are very grateful.

UPDATE ON APRIL 28: CATIE CURTIS!

Joining us for the first time: award-winning songwriter Catie Curtis! Catie is a fellow Mainer; she and I cut our teeth in the Boston music scene together in the early 90s—she's like family to me. Catie's songs have been featured in films and on television, and she's toured the country for 30 years, playing everywhere from the Newport Folk Festival to The White House. I'm getting so excited for NESR Online.

Hi Folks:

We're really excited to announce ...

 

We’ve decided to offer a virtual songwriting retreat—NESR Online! 

 

While it made good sense to postpone in-person NESR to 2022 because of Covid, we were disappointed—we miss the community we’ve built! We don’t want to wait another year or more to connect with you. So we’re going to do a virtual gathering (on Zoom) over Memorial Day weekend (May 28-31).

I'm thrilled to announce that master songwriter Dan Navarro has signed on as an Instructor. He's had a truly fascinating career in the music industry, and is about to embark on another big musical adventure. Dan is like a brother to me, and I'm honored to welcome him into our NESR family. 

 

All the details are here. Space will be limited, so enroll soon for this very special experience—a weekend full of creativity, inspiration and fun!

 

All my best,


Ellis
