Joanna Słowińska: Voice Workshops Series
We invite you to join our series of voice workshops run by the legendary Joanna Słowińska!
"In my opinion, singing is the most perfect way to use your voice, and song is a form in which the whole world is located. It combines the beauty of human voice and - through words - human thought.
Folk song carries the non-verbal message of past generations, created as a gift of knowledge for future generations.
Once song fulfilled many functions in human life; it was not detached from humans, but rather complimented us, accompanying people from birth to death, at work and during fun... Singing together, joyfully and expressing fear, unifying and defining man towards other people and towards God - this is the most complete being of the song.
Singing is passion, a liberation and a way of life. Meeting together in song, we experience the beauty and power of harmony, we find a common song that connects us. Singing together, let's listen to each other - let's listen to each other! " - Joanna Słowińska
