voice and music
with Jonathan Hart Makwaia

Open to anyone wishing to engage creatively with their voice, whether or not they have had previous training. The exact nature of the work will change according to the experience and aspirations of each participant.
Workshop starts promptly on Friday, July 12 at
3:00 PM and ends on Sunday, July 14 at 1:00 PM.
