WELCOME to Sounds & Furies Productions!

who contribute in so many ways. My thanks to all past, present and future
volunteers and supporters. Sounds & Furies wouldn't happen

Our workshops and retreats
focus on topics ranging from drumming to dream exploration,
Wicca, author readings and films.
Occasionally, a Sounds & Furies event works in collaboration with
a community group to raise money for worthwhile organizations.
Each Sounds & Furies event has a particular ambience, whether an
evening, weekend or week long event. For these moments in time, we come
together to share a pleasurable evening of entertainment or a workshop
focusing on our common interests or concerns. THIS is the heart and
soul of Sounds & Furies -- friendships, alliances , common political
and cultural interests. Together, we create community.
- the women's communit
- the LGBT community
- the folk music community
- the Wiccan community
- the arts community
- the environmental community
- the service-oriented and healing communities
And other groups and individuals who care about
the well being of others and planet Earth.
The pages on this website reflect the breadth of Sounds & Furies activities.
