Making Your Voice Heard: Three-Day Vocal Workshop

August 13 - August 15

$35 – $160
Making Your Voice Heard: 
A three-day workshop exploring the voice while rebuilding community after isolation.
With French Singer/Song writer Olivier Marcaud and New York Community-based Artist Michele Brody








The workshop is meant as a three-day creative immersion culminating in a public performance on Sunday afternoon. However, if people cannot commit to the entire weekend, everyone is welcome to attend when they can.

Open to all ages with a range of singing and creative backgrounds, from beginners with no experience to advanced singers. Families are welcome (with day-care available).

Working both indoors and out, participants will explore their vocal and writing voices through interactive tea ceremonies, harmonized circle songs and collective improvisation while tuning into the natural setting of the Surry Arts Barn and Grounds. Culminating in a live and virtual interactive performance with the local community and abroad.
