ABOUT ‘LIFT YOUR VOICE’
As part of the 2017 St. Johns Intergenerational Music Project, this group is intended for singers of ALL AGES and ALL SKILL LEVELS. We’ll sing everything from ol’ standards and favorite folk tunes to well-known hymns and traditional sacred choral music. Emphasis will be placed on celebrating your voice and embracing your voice as it is NOW. You will learn about healthy breathing techniques and how to manage your breath to create beautiful sound. Singers in this group will also have the experience of singing in front of an audience in our end-of-term sing-along performance.
ABOUT CPPAC’s INTERGENERATIONAL PROGRAM
The Intergenerational Program is committed to fostering compassion and service to others by connecting people of all ages through music. In 2017, the program took shape in the form of the St. Johns Intergenerational Music Project. It included weekly sessions at three partnering organizations in St. Johns: Harvest Homes (Homemade Jam intergenerational music jam sessions), Bridge Meadows (Music at Meadows intergenerational music group), and Assumption Village (Lift Your Voice! intergenerational choir). In 2018, CPPAC continues to partner with these three organizations to bring intergenerational arts groups to community members.
The 2017 St. Johns Intergenerational Music Project was made possible by generous donations from friends of Cathedral Park Performing Arts Collective and by a grant from North Portland Neighborhood Services.
Lift Your Voice! Intergenerational Choir is looking for sponsors, supporters of lifelong engagement in the performing arts, who would like to make ongoing or one-time contributions to our program. Every little bit helps, and we are so grateful to our giving community!
