TICKETS ARE ON SALE for The Voice Forum Meeting… it’s official!
Yesterday was World Voice Day and I was committed to opening ticket sales on that day. It was a beastly amount of work but I had this arbitrary deadline to meet. And I did. On Instagram (@reenaguptamd). At 10pm. Hey we all define victory differently!
My FB friends had to wait for today… sorry! But don’t worry – we still have a few tickets available
Click the link below for the event details including an ever-growing list of teachers and courses. This VIRTUAL conference is for you… voice coaches, therapists, singers, actors, VO artists, audiobook narrators… anyone interested in voice should be there. Don’t forget the grand finale – the world premiere of our project to bring music back and hire artists again!
Let me know if you have questions and yes, Mindy Frandsen Pack and I had a terrible time recording our announcement.
