with Aubrey Atwater (for all levels, all voices)
UPDATED 03/09/19
We will offer another session in ballad singing soon ... and Aubrey will also offer a more general song / singing class in Spring. Email if interested!
A four-week class in Ballad Singing with instructor Aubrey Atwater will be held on Wednesdays, February 6, 13, 20, and 27, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. This class is designed for all levels of adults and teens. Minimum of 5 students needed to hold class. Fee for the four-week class is $90. To allow for deeper exploration we have decided to make this a 90-minute class as opposed to one hour. Prepayment necessary! 
Aubrey Atwater will teach this class in Ballad Singing. Enjoy immersing yourself in the world of the ancient story song! Traditional Anglo, Celtic, Appalachian and Ozark ballads leave no stones unturned when it comes to portraying the human experience. In keeping with ballad sessions and encounters throughout her career with great ballad singers such as Jean Ritchie, Betty Smith, singers from the Inishowen Pennisula, Sheila Kay Adams, Pete Seeger, Doc Watson, and more, Aubrey will present a generous swath of story songs with themes of work, the sea, humor, love, disguise, betrayal, murder, longing, nature, and more. Participants are welcome to share ballads they know as well. Come sit "knee to knee" with Aubrey for a singing, historical, and cultural adventure!

So we can be assured of meeting the minimum needed to hold any of our class offerings, BRT NEEDS PRE-PAYMENT AT LEAST 3 DAYS BEFORE THE START OF ANY CLASS (and hopefully sooner!) or we'll need to cancel at that time.
