Vocal Improvisation with Philip Hamilton.
Hamilton leads a vocal workshop designed to increase participant's ability to improvise sounds in group and solo settings. This workshop also utilizes breathing exercises designed to increase one's awareness of the voice and its range of possibilities. He has worked with some of the leading musical minds of our time including John Cage, Donald Fagen,(Steely Dan) Pat Metheny, Gilberto Gil and Vernon Reid. This is a two hour workshop.


Masterclass with celebrity panel
Each group will perform 1-2 songs, receive feedback from our celebrity panel (members Voices, Philip Hamilton, Ben Stevens and others!), perform again, and then hear from the audience. It's an educational experience, on and off the stage.


Essential Listening with Ben Stevens
What should we listen to, and how should we listen? A critical and creative approach to the contemporary a cappella canon, or: Alexander technique for the innerest of ears.
