THE SOCIAL - Pop Up Choir : Celebrate Pride!

Folks of all singing levels are welcome to come together and experience the joy of singing in harmony. We always have a great time, and this month we're singing great tunes that celebrate Gay Pride! The workshop includes vocal warmups, harmony singing exercises and learning tunes arranged for vocal harmony. Andrea Bunch has been teaching singing and music for 18 years. She creates a celebratory atmosphere where people can make music, have some fun, and learn a thing or two. [more info]
