Groovetrail is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization designed to use the myriad of talented musicians who live in the Flathead Valley for concerts and workshops at schools, community centers, hospitals, retirement communities and Veterans homes.
Founder and educator Erica von Kleist has worked as a consultant and director at several outreach-based institutions including Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York. After moving to Whitefish, Erica saw that many of the musicians here want nothing more than to share their gifts with the community, especially with those who need it most. Groovetrail connects these talented artists from local areas and abroad with the Flathead communities.
This fall we are hosting over 30 Groovetrail performances, as well as a Scat Singing competition for local music students and a guitar class for adults! Stay tuned for more fun and exiting news from Groovetrail!
