Music

Voyager Offers A Variety Of Musical Groups & Events!

Our music groups are always looking for additional members. All levels of talent are welcome.

Belle Tones Long and short term singers are welcome to join this group of female singers who enjoy four-part barbershop harmony. The ability to read music is NOT required. Performances are scheduled at various resort functions.
Beginner’s Guitar Jam Session Have you always wished that you could learn to play by ear? Most of us aren’t born with the ability, but like learning to talk, we can train our ears to “hear” the melody through practice. For the first hour, we use exercises in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine’s book, “Scales and Arpeggios,” to teach our ears to hear the notes and our fingers to find them. All instruments are welcome, but the exercises in the book are written for guitar and contain standard notation and guitar tabs. We spend the second hour playing tunes and taking breaks from “Parking Lot Picker’s Bluegrass Book” by Dix Bruce.
Beginning Mountain Dulcimer Come meet the beautiful mountain dulcimer. It’s one of the easiest instruments to learn to play, and we have a great time making music in a fun, relaxed setting. No musical experience required, and you will learn to play an entire song at the very first meeting. Bring your dulcimer and a music stand. I will have a couple of instruments on hand for you to try if you don’t already own one. Be prepared to have a great time!
Bluegrass Jam Session  Join this fun-loving acoustic bluegrass jam session. The group sometimes performs as a band at Voyager functions.
Chapel Choir Join the Chapel Choir and sing Sundays at the Chapel service. Practice is held once a week – join anytime.
Coyote Chorus Join the men’s chorus and sing Barbershop harmony at weekly sessions. Performances are scheduled for various resort functions throughout the season.
Dance Band Instrumental and vocal practice sessions playing popular standards with dance band focus.
Handbell Choir 3 levels offered – learn to play (previous musical experience not required), intermediate (previous experience required), and advanced (for the more experienced ringers). Occasional concerts are given within and outside the resort.
Intermediate Mountain Dulcimer Players’ Club For players with some experience playing the mountain dulcimer. You should know how to tune, play basic chords, and strum. We will be playing in DAD (D Mixolydian) tuning and will initially use songsheets that I will bring. We may eventually purchase Stephen Seifert’s “Join the Jam” songbook. Bring your dulcimer and a music stand.
Native American
Flute Circle
Learn to play and enjoy the Native American flute.
Show Choir Auditioned singers and instrumentalists will perform Broadway show music, and possibly put on a show in the spring. We will try to have a balanced group of around 12 to 24 singers and two or three instrumentalists.
Ukulele Club Weekly gathering of advanced beginner (and up) ukulele players who know basic chords and strums. We try to learn a new chord progression or strum pattern each week, and we take turns choosing songs from the book, “The Daily Ukulele.” This book contains 365 songs specially chosen for the ukulele. While all are welcome, if you’ve never played before, you should consider first going to the Ukulele Lesson group.
Ukulele Lessons No musical background needed. Come join the fun!
Voyager Fun Band Weekly informal gathering of up to 55 folks who have a great time making music together. We love all kinds of instruments—guitars, mandolins, fiddles, ukuleles, harmonicas, washboards, keyboards, etc. You name it, we like it and we love all kinds of music! Each week we take turns picking tunes from a big songbook that we made, and when it’s your turn, you can lead the group or pass. No pressure. If you haven’t played in a long time or you’ve never played before and want to start, this group is for you. We don’t teach you how to play, but we have an excellent list of instructors. Come every week or just drop in when you can and be sure to bring your instrument and a music stand. Welcome home to Fun Band!
