All Aboard the Loop Station! with Bessie Wapp

Musician, theatre artist and educator Bessie Wapp welcomes all in a supportive and playful environment to let your voice join with others in creating on-the-spot improvised grooves, textures, and flights of fancy! Using a looping station we’ll build up layers of sound to create original soundscapes together – and hear how every voice adds a unique beauty to the whole.
