Just for the record, here's a video collage of the 2017 event: https://vimeo.com/226691674.  There's a short clip of yours truly early on teaching the lullaby "Duermete mi niño." What's neat is the video editing, for they spliced together me demonstrating the song with the class playing it together, so it sounds like I start the melodic line and then everyone finishes it.  The highlight of the event is the dulcimer orchestra at the end.  You can see the spunky Elaine Conger conducting one section of the orchestra.
