Workshops

Coldsnap is about bringing a diverse range of music to a diverse group of people. To that end, we are pleased once again to present a series of free workshops open to all members of the community. The workshops bring audience and artists together to discuss how music can be used to promote communication, understanding and well-being between cultures and communities or just to have fun!!!
