Building a Vocal Community: Singing in the African American Tradition
A workshop by Ysaye Barnwell
Single rate—$50
Couple rate—$75
Family rate—$100

One of the country’s most energetic and beloved workshop leaders, Ysaye M. Barnwell, will envelop you in the joy of community through the music of the African-American vocal tradition. In this all-day workshop, you will sing rhythms, chants and traditional songs of Africa, as well as songs from African American culture - spirituals, ring shouts, hymns, gospels, and songs from the Civil Rights Movement, and songs of contempo-rary struggle. The historical, social and political context will be provided.

No prior musical experience is necessary; the only requirements are a willingness to sing as fully as you can and to embrace joy.

For 34 years Ysaye M Barnwell was a member of the Grammy Award winning a cappella ensemble Sweet Honey in the Rock. She is a composer commissioned to create music for dance, choral groups, film, and stage productions. Barnwell holds a PhD in speech pathology, a post-doc M.S. in Public Health, 3 honorary doctorates, and has conducted her inspiring music workshops on three continents. She appears on numer-ous recordings, has acted in TV and film, and has written two children’s books.
