Our friend Marie Delaney , artist, writer and musician, created this visual impression of our outdoor "Lake Stage.
Any resemblance to a "real musician" is purely intentional. The plane might be a cross between my PA12 and Bryans C-185.

The Share Your Voice Foundation is a qualified 501(c)3 nonprofit association dedicated to the provision of the Empowerment through Performance Workshop programs and other arts-based cultural and educational activities.
The agenda of SYVF is geared specifically for young people ages 13-17 hailing from diverse backgrounds. Some are considered at-risk while others are talented individuals living in remote areas. SYVF serves these young people regardless of race, religion, creed, sex or socio-economic status.
Through interactive exploration of culture and the production of performance in all its manifest delights, the organization's charter is to encourage participants to unleash their creativity in a safe environment while improving self-esteem and developing strong, effective communication skills.
Participants are encouraged and guided to discover their own innate talents, cultivate a sense of pride and appreciate the importance of collaborating with others.
Ultimately, the main objective is to help future generations find and share their unique and individual voice for the betterment of all society.
Every young person should be allowed to shine!
Founders Jennifer Julian Johnson (JJ) Karen Jane Borger and the other board members invite everyone to join us for this event.

AREA MAPS BELOW
Nestled in Stillwater State Forest, just 35 miles below the Canadian border, 15 miles NW of Whitefish Montana and 40 miles from the West Glacier entrance to Glacier Park is a magical piece of land on Lower Stillwater Lake we call Stillwater Landing.
This is my private camp for music and fun with family, friends and others who share our interest in music, flying, and campfires under a Montana moon. I share it with the eagles, loons, turtles, deer, moose and the other friends of nature.
My passion is music, arts and living with nature. Stillwater Landing is a retreat, complete with a small amphitheater on the water and an indoor stage in our hangar.
Sharing this with my many musician friends and our friends who love to just listen, has led us to many "spontaneous" jam sessions as well as some more organized events. The first weekend in August we host a LAKE MUSIC FESTIVAL combined with our SEAPLANE "SPLASH IN" on even years (next one Aug. 2012).
The facility is available for private events and weddings.
Check the General Information bar for details, transportation, lodging and other information.
Amphitheater opened the first time on July 4th 2006, with Tom Russell and Michael Martin playing for Bill's birthday party.

(we are usually recording)
concerts are to "listen", conversations must be out of "earshot"
camping and use of lake area is at your own risk
approved floatation devices are required on all watercraft, they do give $100 tickets!
This is "home" so respect private areas
