How do you tell your story? Are you a singer, poet, rapper, producer, dancer, artist, actor, parent, student? What stories do we share and how do our individual stories intertwine? We are inviting the entire BHCC college community, students, clubs, faculty, staff, and alumni, to participate in a collage art project entitled "Weaving Together Our Stories Through Song." This collaboration is offered together with the Office of Student Activities, Performing Arts Department, Music Club, and International Center. It is facilitated by Dr. Riikka Pietiläinen Caffrey, Professor of Music, Paul Moda, Director of Student Leadership and Engagement; and composer Kristin Vining, with BHCC Alumni Taeyoung Lee as Production Assistant. Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, November 15 at 1 p.m. on Zoom. Zoom meetings/rehearsals will culminate into an in-person workshop on Thursday December 1, 4-8 p.m. and two sharings on Friday December 2, at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. For more information, please contact Dr. Riikka Pietiläinen Caffrey, at firstname.lastname@example.org
