Class Description

This very special class, with the remarkable Evelyn Harris in the lead, will focus on both speaking and singing to express values and visions to move our world toward peace, nonviolence, equity, social justice, fairness, and inclusion. The series will include claiming the power of one’s voice, composing original works, and making songs from speeches. Evelyn seeks to incorporate everything vocal into the class series—from animal sounds to vocalizations that express delight, fear, and other strong emotions. Singers and those who claim they are“ non-singers” all welcome! This class will be empowering, and uplifting. Join us!
