Gospel Singing Workshop, Oct 16, 2010 Clark NJ

Location: New Jersey, USA
Olympia's Daughters A Cappella Ensemble and The Prayer and Praise Fellowship will be co-sponsoring a "Gospel Singing Workshop" on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010 from 10am-5pm, in Clark NJ. The day includes a morning and afternoon learning and singing session, a catered lunch, and 2 mini concerts by Olympia's Daughters A Cappella Ensemble and The Prayer and Praise Fellowship Singers.
 
The workshop will be facilitated by Sister Alice Martin, gospel vocalist and teacher, and her brother, Fatty, accompanist. They have an uncanny ability to take an audience full of people who never sang together before, and turn them into a fierce Gospel Choir in one day!  People of ALL faiths (and those with none at all) and ALL walks of life are encouraged to help us create community together through our shared love of music. ALL ARE WELCOME!
 
You must pre-register for this event. I am including the flyer here, but I know the formatting will get skewed here, so if you need a clean copy, please send me an email and I will send you one. (psh514@comcast.net).

We are writing to invite singers and music lovers of all experience levels to join us for a very special Gospel Singing Workshop on Saturday, October 16 from 10am until 5pm in Clark, NJ.
