The sound at the heart of the snake horn fragment

2:00 - 4:00 pm   Sunday, July 31st
Incantations and Song Magic
Mt. Greylock is not only the highest mountain in Massachusetts, but J.K. Rowling has designated it as the home of the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardy!

Hogwarts Classroom​ = Bascom Lodge?
In this two hour workshop we will determine if we’re Thunderbirds, Horned Serpents, Pukwudgies or Wampuses and then create incantations, chants or poems based on our character. What is the sound at the heart of the snake horn fragment? Our creations can be performed at the evening show or kept secret.
Rhythm instruments will be provided or found outdoors.

Senator Elizabeth Warren said: “Defense Against the Dark Arts, Prof? (J.K. Rowling)? Where do I apply? Trump, Death Eaters - I got this!”
Let’s see what we got in the way of defense and magic.

 According to J.K. Rowling, --->The Ilvermory School was located atop Greylock in its misty past.
Like at Hogwarts, Ilvermorny students are sorted into four houses, and as with Hogwarts, fans can take a quiz on Pottermore to determine which Ilvermony house they belong to. The choices on this side of the pond are named after magical creatures rather than school founders: Thunderbird, Horned Serpent, Pukwudgie, and Wampus. The first two are exactly what they sound like, the third is “a short, grey-faced, large-eared creature distantly related to the European goblin” (one of whom helped the school’s founding family in their time of need), and the fourth is a kind of panther.

I envision Senator Warren leading our chorus Sunday evening, with a few incantations from J.K. Rowling thrown in for good measure.   

I will work out choral parts for the Thunderbirds, Horned Serpents, Pukwudgies and Wampuses in the audience. Best to find out who you are before July 31st.
