As the school year gets underway, we’re learning about what opportunities staff and students participated in over the summer.
Rainbow’s music teacher, Sue Ford, attended something called the Sister Singers Network Festival at the University of Illinois, Champagne/Urbana this summer.
There she had the honor of hearing a song that she wrote called “Heal Me” by a mass chorus of 250 women.
“Heal Me” by Sue Ford was recorded by Womansong a few years ago. Listen to the audio version:
She also performed with Womansong of Asheville as well as facilitated a workshop called “Rhythm for Singers”.
The video below shows Sue playing the banjo to one of the mass chorus songs, “I Come From Women” by Amy Carol Webb:
We’re so proud of Sue!
