Teens ages 14-19 can take advantage of this rare opportunity to c_raft a narrative around their own "one of a kind" life stories and experiences and pair them with appropriate music choices for a "cabaret style" performance. Working in a small group with Resound NW educator and performer Courtney Freed and a pianist, participants will develop a particularly dynamic solo performance piece in a professional, supportive, and fun environment.

You will:

- Discover a wealth of material for your project

- Receive constructive and healthy feedback about your ideas, delivery, and performance

- Practice your stage presence

- Build vocal stamina

- Express your creativity

- Ease performance anxiety

No prior singing experience necessary.

​The 4 day class will culminate in a final showcase during the end of the last session where students will have an opportunity to share their progress with friends and family!

June 25 - 28 from 9:30a - 2pm

“All that matters now is where I go from here…”

You’re invited to a warm and loving celebration of Leah Yorkston’s next chapter. Sparked by a student’s query, who wondered when the next opportunity would be to see Leah perform, this concert is a heartfelt thank you to the community who have nurtured and supported Leah over the last 40 years. Rather than looking back, we’ll be looking forward, with songs and music that have (and continue to) carry Leah through the crucibles of life, planting seeds for greater joy, love, and connection in her years to come. Accompanied by long-time friend Stephanie Smith, come for the spectacular concert and stay for the laughter, memories, and communal joy. And hey, if the spirit moves us, maybe there’ll even be an aria or two. ;)

Come, grab your free glass of wine, and settle in for an unforgettable evening.
