How do we get into our voices?  How do we reveal the unique value of our voice to the world?

This weekend is all about the beginnings of our vocal adventure which  adds a magical and powerful  elixir to all aspects of our lives.
So we begin.  Like every singer ever born. We will get our creative juices flowing in a way that respects and honors all who ga ther here.  We will warm up our bodies with movement and dance.  We will warm up our voices with singing and song. We will warm up our imaginations with storytelling and Art.  And we will warm up our hearts by expressing ourselves through all of these magnificent and inspiring art forms.
The program will culminate with a performance/sharing which will be open to to the public.

 Program Director Bex Roper-Caldbeck is a true devotee of all forms of artistic expression with   a great love of collaborating with all who wish to express their passion.
