Come out to Appalachia and gather ‘round the campfire! This class will explore vocal technique, expression, and performance through the winsome songs of Bluegrass-style musicals such as Bright Star and Golden Boy of the Blue Ridge. Along the way, we’ll be experimenting with collaborative vocal improvisation as a tool for ear training, creative vocal expression, and “finding the rhythm” with each other as a group. All skill levels welcome!
