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.
We are back with the first episode of 2020 with none other than Lisa Forkish! From Divisi, to Vocal Rush to HIVE and even more in between, Lisa is a champion of inclusivity in the a cappella community. Whether it be through the many years of work with the Women’s A Cappella Association, being the driving force behind WeSing, writing original music, or being a constant mentor and coach to all, Lisa’s work is bringing us all a deeper level of connection and understanding.
Kari Francis has a long and storied a cappella history – from her college days with The Tritones and The Daughters of Triton to founding Musae to her most recent turn with the Sirens of Gotham – she has an unparalleled depth and breadth of knowledge. Check out what Kari has to say about her experience in a cappella and her thoughts on the roles female and female-identifying persons play!
