A primal force in Bay Area music, singer-activist-educator Melanie DeMore brings her striking voice and empowering songs, old and new, to Ashkenaz. She leads her Community Sing, guaranteed to create instant community and raise spirits of participants at a time when we all need spirits raised!
Melanie DeMore was a founding member of the Grammy nominated vocal ensemble Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir, and is a regular collaborator with other musicians for an array of good causes (coming up is Jennifer Berezan’s extravaganza Song for All Beings). But nothing is closer to her heart than bringing people together to experience the healing power of music. Whether she’s performing solo, leading stick pounding workshops, doing residencies with choirs all over the country or teaching Sound Awareness to sixth graders, baby boomers, or senior citizens, one thing is certain: her mission is to make sure everyone returns home with the same excitement and passion for living that she herself has.
