  • Exploring Vocal Harmony with Jane Lewis & Tannis Slimmon — Saturday, October 10 @ 1-4 p.m. $45. What is harmony? How do you know what to sing? Join us for an afternoon of learning and experimenting with vocal harmonies.
  • Vocal Improvisation with Alyssa Wright — Saturday, October 24 @ 1-4 p.m. $45. We’ll explore the key elements of improvisation: rhythm, ornamentation, dynamics, phrase structure, and more! Some very simple knowledge of theory (i.e., can you sing “Do, a Deer”, or a basic scale?) is required. An open mind, spirit of adventure and playful attitude is mandatory.
  • Focus on Harmony (6 Weeks) with Jane Lewis & Jude Vadala — starts Thursday, October 22 @ 7.30 p.m. $175. Delve into the art of singing harmony. You’ll be introduced to easy and fun Beginner Musical Theory (no prior experience necessary). Learn to read musical notes, work on specific songs, and make beautiful harmony with the group!
  • Rise Up Singing! Gospel Choir (8 Weeks) with Sam Turton & Jane Lewis — starts Sunday, October 25 @ 7 p.m. $190. Join us for 8 weeks to learn and sing a collection of rousing gospel-style classics! We’ll work on harmony, dynamics, call-and-response and lead singing in an inclusive, informal manner. Songs will include freedom songs and work songs as well as traditional spirituals. Our focus is on the joyful expression of music, and people of all belief systems are welcome. No auditions, no reading music, no prior singing experience necessary.
