PAST: SINGING: Monthly: "Community Sing" with Ysaye Barnwell at Levine School Campus - usually WED or THURS eve mid-month - from 7:00pm - 9:00pm, All ages, $5
This is one of the best kept secrets in the event realm in this town if you ask me. You can take an amazing vocal workshop with Ysaye Barnwell of the vocal group "Sweet Honey in the Rock" for just five bucks! No prior singing experience is required and no need to even have a super voice, just a desire to sing! She covers a great musical range of styles and forms that I couldn't possibly capture in this post, and I encourage you, and that includes men, to check it out if you can. Just watching Ysaye lead this group is worth the price of admission!
