Building the Vocal Community: A Workshop with Ysaye Barnwell
Presented by Wellesley College
September 25, 2013
Dr. Ysaye Barnwell, acclaimed vocalist and founder of Sweet Honey in the Rock, will lead us in this wonderful opportunity to experience the joys of finding our own voice. We will explore African-American culture through a wide range of vocal music, including congregational and choral traditions, chants from Africa and the diaspora, and music of the civil rights movement and contemporary struggles. This is a rare opportunity to be part of a community, and a member of a large and welcoming choir where no experience is necessary.
