Recorder Group


We have many plans and ideas both current and future and it is exciting to watch them unfold:

Visual ArtsART: Classes galore and a wonderful sales Gallery, special exhibits and encouragement to create – there is something for everyone at Lake Effect Community Arts.

MusicMUSIC: We have an active Community Chorus, an informal Recorder group, and classes now and then, all having fun exploring music in so many different ways. You’re welcome to join in!

DanceDANCE: From foot stomping reels to elegant moves, get your feet moving and come dance! Dance is good for the soul as well as the soles. Good fun, good music, and friendly people.

TheaterTHEATER:  Develop skills, discover fun, enjoy performing, get involved. Community theater is exciting and wide open. It’s yet in our future, but we can’t wait for it to happen.

Lake Effect Arts is a  501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that encourages participation in the arts in Schoolcraft County, Michigan, enriching the lives of the community and all those involved through the diverse and wonderful world of the arts. While Lake Effect Arts does not yet have a permanent home (but we are looking!) things are happening. We invite you to join in the fun, and join in this vibrant community.
