Join a performing all-original women's ensemble!
- Seeking harmony goddess!
Four women seek 5th for original vocal ensemble MAKING WAVES:
Do you love to sing, rehearse, and perform with other women? Can you
blend in intricate harmony, then jump into vocal percussion or an
improvisational lead? Does your voice express your heart, your
passion, and your convictions? Can you commit to a weekly rehearsal?
Since past auditionees have dropped out after hearing our performance
schedule, here it is up front: 1-2 concerts in Feb., 5-8 in March
(we're part of a compilation release), 2-3 in April, 5-8 during 1st 3
weeks of May (release & pre-tour) followed by a 2-week west coast
"Rose Street on the Road: Creating Musical Community" tour (5/25-6/10)
featuring Making Waves, Pamela Means, and Irina Rivkin. There might
be another 1-2 week tour this summer, plus occasional short weekend
tours. Most non-tour shows are evenings and weekends (i.e. day jobs
ok, especially those with some time off in the summer).
If all this overwhelms you, it's not a good fit. If it excites you,
then Making Waves may be for you! We sing all-original songs -- both
songwriters and non-songwriters welcome. Reading music is not
important, but a good ear for creating and singing harmony is.
Creating that sweet, soulful, and rockin' blend of voices to express
and inspire personal and social change!
Making Waves: Singing out truth in multiple-part harmony
This women's acapella group was organized by Rose Street House of
Music Producer Irina Rivkin to record an original song (Making Waves),
which aired on KPFA, in support of this community radio station's
struggle. The group continued, in several different incarnations, to
inspire audiences at venues such as Freight and Salvage, Luna Sea,
Rose St. House of Music, Ashkenaz, East Bay Pride, and La Peña. They
have shared stages with Rebecca Riots, Margie Adam, Gwen Avery, Alice
Di Micele, Irene Farrera, & Julia Butterfly.
For info, please call Irina at (510) 524-3545 (before 11 p.m.)
