This individualized workshop covers technique and repertoire on a contemporary version of the traditional Cretan Lyra, which Kelly has been involved in developing. It also serves as an introduction to Cretan music, and to Kelly’s own compositional and performance practice.


Players of any experience level are welcome; those needing an instrument should contact us & we can facilitate. The workshop will run from 10-6pm, Mon-Fri, at Eastminster United Church, 310 Danforth Ave., Toronto. Students of all levels are welcome.
