Fall 2022

Greetings friends. We have exciting community news about what’s in store for SummerSongs in 2023!

Save the dates:

~ Saturday, February 25th, 2023
SyberSongCircles (the 2nd)! We’ll gather online once more to meet and greet for a full day of song-sharing and community time, presented on a donation basis. Come reconnect with us on Zoom (and we welcome newcomers)!

~ Sunday July 23-Saturday July 29, 2023
The 25th Annual SummerSongs @ the Stony Point Center (NY)
Plan to join us for our silver anniversary year as we continue our work and play. We’ll be announcing our stellar staff soon, so kindly stay tuned.

Our songwriting camp began in 1999 as a dream realized by SummerSongs founder Penny Nichols. We’ve gathered every year since then in upstate New York to reconnect, collaborate, celebrate, and learn from and about one another and the world through the lenses of songwriting, creativity, and humanity.

We do this by presenting the finest songwriters we know who also happen to be great, generous, and humble communicators of this craft we hold so highly. We offer classes, coffeehouses, concerts, song circles, and community, and we’ve collectively discovered how meaningful and enriching our time together is.

We can’t wait to welcome you once more.

With gratitude,

David Roth
Executive Director
