About the Event

Saturday, February 20: If you are registering for today's event, please follow your registration transaction with an email to so that we can get you started as quickly as possible!

Friday, February 19 – 6-9pm | Saturday, February 20 – 9am-9pm PST

This is the first weekend after Presidents’ Day that 125 of us will not gather in the redwoods for the Annual CCMC Winter Retreat and Reunion. Many of us have been thinking of it as “one more thing we’re missing” – but wait – it IS happening! 

TO REGISTER: All attendees must register. An All Access Pass is $20. For quickest registration, choose the PayPal option. Alternatively, choose the “Pay by check" option on the registration form so that we know you’re coming and then send in the check. Your optional event scholarship fund contribution will enable someone to attend who otherwise could not. If you wish to specify a particular scholarship recipient, email and make sure that person also registers. For those requesting a scholarship for this event, you will incur no fees when completing the registration form. We will email you to confirm that you’re in. Event fees are non-refundable. 

HOW: Zoom meetings for both hosted and impromptu jams, Open Mics, space for people who just want to chat, and break-out rooms for smaller gatherings. Jamulus users can play together and hear one another in real time while seeing each other in a special Zoom break-out room.

WHAT: Friday evening’s schedule includes socializing, an easy Zoom jam and interactive tech talks about Zoom and Jamulus. (We may be able to help you set-up Jamulus quick enough to use it in on Saturday.)

Saturday’s schedule features 12 hours of fun – an OnSong tech talk, slow swing jam, songwriter’s circle, open mics and jams lead by teacher alumni, Michelle Kiba and Steve Kritzer, and more. The chat room is open all day for catching up with friends – happy hour at 5pm!

WHO: This event is open to CCMC Alumni, their guests and to the general public. If space limitations arise, we’ll prioritize Winter Retreat or CCMC Summer Camp alumni. Our goal with this event is to re-create the real-life Winter Retreat culture as much as possible.

We’ll email information a few days before the event, including meeting links, updated event schedule, Open Mic sign-up list, how-to documents, and a volunteer schedule. To maintain event security, we ask that you not share or publicize the meeting links, etc. We need helpers for jam leaders run the Zoom session (duties such muting people or screen-sharing). We could even add a few jam leaders if you’d like to do that.

To become a volunteer, ask a question, OR get Jamulus help ahead of the event, email – please allow 1-2 days for a personal response.
