Vocal Ensemble

With Simon J. E. Drew

“Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.” – Khalil Gibran

Friends, it’s with great joy that we announce the beginning of a new vocal ensemble at Tustin Music Center! 

Led by manager and instructor Simon Drew, this ensemble will be experimental in nature, leading singers on an adventure of mindful listening, improvisation, and creative expression. Sheet music will be nowhere to be found – just singers in a room making beautiful music together. Perhaps it sounds strange now, but please suspend your conclusions until the introduction session!  

The program will run for 10 weeks, with each session lasting 60 minutes. The program will end with a concert for friends and family to hear the magic that results in many voices as one!

If you’d like to be a part of this pilot vocal ensemble, please register your interest. We do not have a set start date, but as soon as we have enough interest, we’ll communicate with everyone regarding the best date to begin.
