implements to classes and haflas. Portable chairs are always a good idea for our musicians.

Some performances will be listed in the Performing Arts Schedule.
Middle Eastern classes are held in several different areas:
Pennsic University class tents ( see map)
The Middle-Eastern Tent ( see map) – located on the Great Middle Highway just across from Runestone Park. It is at the
end of the row of merchants' tents, next to the Pennsic Independent.
Along Battle Road there are a few hospitable merchants who open their store areas to music classes.
These classes are coordinated between the teachers and the merchants, and are listed in the Pennsic Book if the
teachers submitted their class registrations in time.
