VOCAL "VORTEX" EXPLORATION WORKSHOPS
An ImproVox Vocal "VORTEX" is the ultimate instant choir. Workshops promote deep listening, imagination, initiation, and musical invention. Dynamic rhythms and interlocking melodies blend into holy harmonies and daring dissonances. Participants consistently report a jubilant response to making music in the moment.
"You can sing sweet
and get the song sung
but to get to the third
dimension you have to sing it
rough, hurt the tune a little. Put
enough strength to it
that the notes slip. Then
something else happens. The song
gets large." --Tess Gallagher
