Estes Park Retreat

Cantabile has an annual retreat at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park every fall, generally the first weekend in November. We enjoy extra time to rehearse and get to know each other and the music better. Cost to the individual singer is $155 (for a queen bed) or $140 (for a twin bunk bed). Rooms are shared, and meals are potluck. There is always time for enjoying the beautiful YMCA grounds during the weekend.
