To be fully a part of the world singing community it is vitally important that we take a serious look at the music we are singing and how our performances impact our audiences. Part of this growth includes reviewing our current repertoire and being more intentional as we select the new. Awareness of problematic themes can bring on a sense of discomfort, ranging from confusion and annoyance, to outright anger. This workshop will try to address those emotions as well as the process it will take to look at our music through an updated lens. Assessing our music creates a barbershop ecosystem that respects our current and future members. This workshop will attempt to provide strategies to navigate this complex but critical part of our journey. Panelists for this event are Maria Christian, Mo Field, Will Rodriquez, David Wright, and Sandi Wright.
