Sing It Out – Saturday, May 9th, 2020
AHA! Sing It Out is the culminating celebration of one of AHA!’s spring after-school groups. Through 13 weeks each spring, we shepherd a dozen teens through a 12-week program where they are coached by music and theater professionals and AHA! facilitators to learn, master and perform a rock and roll cover song.
Public speaking is said to be the greatest fear of most people, and for most of these youth – most of whom do not have singing or theatrical experience – getting to the point where they can bust out a rock and roll song backed by a live band is truly a process of transformation. As they learn to overcome fears and individual challenges, these youth also learn to support their peers, accept support from peers and trusted adult facilitators and coaches, and to stand tall and sing their hearts open in the face of fear.
The event is held each spring. The participating teens give the breakthrough performance of a lifetime to a packed house of cheering friends, family, and community supporters. We were thrilled to have had the participation of Martin Gore of Depeche Mode at our last event!
Sing It Out 2020 will be held at the majestic Lobero Theatre in Downtown Santa Barbara on Saturday, May 9. Purchase tickets through the Lobero Box Office https://www.lobero.org/events/sing-it-out-2/
