CONCORD, NH – Peggo Horstmann Hodes, director of the Songweavers chorus at Concord Community Music School, will offer a “Vibrant Voice” class for community members on the third Wednesday of every month, January 18 through May 16, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Music School, 23 Wall St., Concord.
“Vibrant Voice” is a way to discover deeper layers of your voice – the personal, internal, unique, spectacular and essential voice. In this class, you will sing, tone, chant, breathe, write, harmonize, move and play. Participants will open and vibrate their entire body, sounding the soul of their voice.
This class, open to men and women age 17 and older, is an opportunity for those who have taken a “Vibrant Voice” workshop to refresh their voice and tap back into playful creativity. It is also an excellent introduction to “Vibrant Voice” for those new to the work.
The cost for the five classes is $85. To register or for more information, call 603-228-1196 or visit www.ccmusicschool.org.
