Dean Shostak returns to the MOMYS!

We are delighted to welcome back Dean Shostak and his glass armonica and violins.  The glass armonica was originally invented by Ben Franklin. It is composed of many glass bowls stacked horizontally together on a rod. The bowls are then spun by a pedal the musician steps on, while their fingers move over the glass bowls.  Dean is a favorite of all visitors to Colonial Williamsburg, and the MOMYS have enjoyed his private concerts at our retreats many times over the past two decades.

This is a “DO NOT MISS IT” event of this year’s retreat!
