If you ever needed to be reminded of just how much a music teacher can change lives, look no further than BriAnne Woodward. Her well-prepared students go on to great success in both PFC & Madison Avenue. Better yet, they are sent off better prepared for a world that often doesn’t make much sense.
This interview is truly inspirational – for students, for teachers, for the future of vocal music, and, well, for everyone. Do your soul a favor and tune in.
Rachael and Amanda chat with Rachel Chalhoub – an all-star you may know as Rachel C. From an accidental start at FSU to being behind the scenes at many of your favorite festivals and events, and even a stint on national TV, she’s got a unique perspective of the community from behind the lens.
Eventually you’ll be able to find her again at rachelismyfriend.com but follow her on social media (@roguepotato) to see what she’s up to and just be friends!
And if you want to see the video she mentions during the interview – here it is.
On Episode 38, Amanda and Rachael sit down with Christine Sack, the former Artistic Director of Voicebox. They talk everything from artistic vision, striving for constant improvement, the visibility and acceptance of non-binary singers, and so much more!
What better time to highlight educators in the a cappella community than right now? In Episode 37, we sit down with Amanda Roeder, the choir director at Chelmsford High School who works with The Crescendos and The Thursdays as well as many a cappella events in the Boston area.
One of the many purposes of art is to challenge yourself and your audience and sometimes that spurs a little controversy. Brittany Russell and Gestalt are making waves and that’s one of the topics of discussion in Episode 36 .
This week on Episode 35, we went a little unconventional. Leslie Kekuewa and Pitches Be Crazy don’t fit the mold of typical a cappella and they embrace it in a way we hope more singers will. Tune in for an interview that talks diving in, real commitment, and putting on a show.
