December Art Loop

Featuring Artist Leah Van Rees
www.leahvanreespainting.com

The paintings examine and exaggerate small details of landscapes and seascapes often overlooked by individuals. These specific elements are illustrated through use of intricate pattern, variety of brushstroke, opacity of paint, and vivid colors. "I am inspired by the configurations found within the natural world, and I strive to convey their individual importance through the medium of oil paint".

"Build-A-Bridge" Workshop with WeBe3

Saturday, May 8, 2015

Christina Cultural Arts Center • Clifford Brown Performance Space


This bold experiment in music-making is a participatory ritual. It is rare to have the opportunity to study with all three of these devoted teachers in one setting. Individually and as a trio, they posses the capacity to encourage, stimulate and challenge singers. The collaborative format invites deep work in listening, ensemble blending, soloing and the creation of spontaneous sound. Discover how musicians create community and change lives.

Rhiannon, a devoted teacher for 35 years is in a category by herself, exploring the skill and spirit of improvisation. Her expertise lies with the connection between body and voice, teaching the invention of melody, harmony, rhythm, language and story while guiding singers towards the heart and soul of their musical selves.

Joey takes us to the bottom of the sound illuminating bas lines, groove, chord changes and complex rhythmic structures.

David Worm trains singers in percussive vocal techniques.

"Because we sing in an invented language, it is accessible across borders and cultures, making it possible to create this musical magic anywhere on the planet"

"Improvisation is a beautiful musical force and a wonderful life-changing tool because it teaches us to stay awake and be present in very moment to our options, gifts and challenges"
