Ysaye Barnwell Workshop

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.
