Lao Heritage Foundation 2018 Philly Mini Summer Camp
This year from August 24-26, 2018 Lao Heritage Foundation will be hosting a musical Mini Summer Camp in Philly. For three days, students will learn with a master musician from Laos, using traditional instruments. Classes will take place at Bok Building (room location & instructions will be emailed to registered students closer to camp dates) ending with a public performance at the Wat Lao Phouthathammaram Buddhist Temple. We're so excited as this is the first time ever for LHF to host classes in Philadelphia and all ages are welcomed!
