      Barbara McAfee House Concert and Community Sing

      The public is invited to attend a concert of music, humor, community singing, and surprise, Sunday, April 7, 7pm. Tickets on sale now, with a sliding scale fee of $8-$18.

      Barbara McAfee is a Singer/songwriter, Song leader, Voice coach, Recording artist, Hospice choir leader, Keynote speaker, and Instigator of radical aliveness. A professional singer/songwriter and keynote speaker, Barbara blends practical content, sassy music, useful wisdom, and sophisticated humor in her concerts. She has released six CDs of her music.
      "I love getting people singing who think they can't," Barbara says. By creating a safe and nurturing atmosphere, she leads groups on a journey with sound. Singing in groups creates a feeling of community and forges connections, Barbara says, explaining that it also offers lessons about cooperation and balance.

      “Singing together is like removing this blinder that tells us we’re all alone,” says McAfee. “Suddenly the connections are lit up between us. It’s a visceral experience of being an individual in a team or community. When you sing, it comes form your deepest centre, your private temple. Spirit goes out on the breath and vibrates in the world. It’s not rational. Singing lights up both sides of the brain. We use our bodies and our emotions.” 
      Barbara is the founder of the Morning Star Singers, a group of volunteers who bring songs of comfort and healing to people in hospitals, hospices, and nursing homes.
      Barbara McAfee has been a voice coach for over twenty years supporting leaders from all sectors to unleash the full power and presence in their voices. Her book, Full Voice: The Art and Practice of Vocal Presence (Berrett-Koehler Publishers) was the #1 Amazon bestseller in business communications when it was released in October of 2011.
      Barbara was “the band” for a 15-city Women’s Leadership Revival Tour with leadership author and speaker Margaret Wheatley and wrote the theme song as well. Barbara also appears regularly with author Peter Block who wrote the forward to her book.
      "Barbara offers a unique blend of skills: many years as a consultant, superb singer/songwriter, and voice coach. It's her mix of talents and perspectives that makes her so good! In our work together, I've observed how much she offers to people and groups. Barbara invites us to the edge -- and does so gently, confidently, and with great skill." ~Margaret J. Wheatley, Ed.D., Author of Leadership and the New Science and Perseverance and coauthor of Walk Out Walk On
