“A great location. A great time of year. A great group of people. IGE celebrates and dives into the spirit and energy of Art & Music in a way that encourages exploration, of the art and of the self and of the community. Sounds pretty awesome to me....I am in!”

With IGE, the musical explorations at the heart of Immersions are often spontaneous, inevitably unique, and utterly inspirational.
