Bella Lumina will take a deep dive
into SONGS OF PROTEST and
SONGS OF PEACE
We will study and sing music has come from the oppression of Black people and the Civil Rights Movement, the Women’s Movement, anti-war, and music associated with social justice in America.
We will explore music, both historical and contemporary, that expresses the pain and outcry of injustice in America alongside music that can lend light and hope for change and equality.
We will sing! We will explore!
We will listen! We will grow!
Resources and PDFs of music will be available for you
via a shared Google folder.
Sing-at-Home mp3 tracks will be provided via the
same Google folder.
Our weekly online meeting will include
vocalization/warm-up time, learning and practicing new music together, sectionals (via Zoom breakout rooms), exploration of song context and history, and lots of laughter.
