Students in this workshop will put together two contrasting songs for an evening of themed songs based off of a single word (each week Alan will give the buzz word for the following week theme). Three weeks of songs combine to create one phenomenal performance at the end of the workshop!
Rehearsals: Friday, January 10th, 17th and 24th - 6pm-8pm
