Kelsey Onwuzuruigbo - lead artist
Madison and Napier in districts 8 and 19
Kelsey Onwuzuruigbo was awarded $3,500 to work with participants at Liberty Collegiate Academy and Napier Elementary School and Community Center to provide an interactive after school program that encourages self-esteem through the medium of vocal technique in a project entitled “Unveiling the Voice Within.” The focal points of the project will include: body language, vocal pedagogy, self-awareness, stage presence and other ideas that stimulate a well rounded person. Sessions will be taught in a “master class” setting where the participants will be actively engaged in discussions, demonstrations, and group activities. At the completion of the program, the participants will present a final recital to the general public as they unveil their voices to their community.The projected dates for the final recitals are May 18th and May 20th.
