seeking harmony goddess
- Making Waves, a personal-political original women's vocal ensemble,
which has recently been touring and performing as a trio, is
considering expanding to a quartet again.
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
and regular performances?
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. Be part of a sweet, soulful, and rockin'
blend of voices to express and inspire personal and social change!

of our ancestors. Deep, inspired, & passionate, her richly textured
arrangements make the songs both urgent & enduring." (Andrea
