Gongs Along the Mohawk: A Sound Immersion at Mabee Farm

The Gong is one of man’s most powerful and oldest transformational and therapeutic instruments. Renowned gong artists Charles Adinolfi and Tim Bell will share with you an experience of wonder and relaxation. Gongs, tubular bells, and crystal and Tibetan bowls will resonate to create a calming, centering, energizing place of  transformation and healing inside the Dutch Barn. Joining them in this immersive  journey is guitarist Scott Collins, whose exotic sounds are with tremendous passion and pyrotechnical velocity. Diana Domingo will bring her gifts as an artist and sound voice healer. Zelda Hotaling, a member of the Haudenosaunee will promote healing through her use of crystal bowls, drums, and rattles. And percussionist Blair Davis will join in. The day will begin and end with a dance piece choreographed to the electronic music of Carl Landa, Skidmore’s Dance Department’s Director. Plus surprise guests from the local sound healing community. A truly magical experience awaits you. Come join us for an afternoon of wonder! Suggested donation to the musicians: $15. You may wish to bring a yoga mat and/or blanket to get comfortable.
