PART ONE, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. – THE SONG CIRCLE! With Lea, Debbie and Antonina sharing their original music and a few favorites by other songwriters. Community Singing is a growing movement of singers, songleaders and songwriters who sing together for joy and healing. Songs are taught in the oral tradition in a simple call-and-echo style, and include chants, rounds, unison, harmony, and songs with multiple layers. The lyrics are affirming and hopeful, with themes of love, connection, acceptance, compassion, overcoming struggle, authenticity, social justice, the earth, and honoring grief and pain. No singing experience is required and you may come and sing or simply relax and receive the goodness!

1:00-2:00 Bring Your Own Lunch!

PART TWO, 2 – 4 p.m. THE CONCERT! With Lea and Antonina sharing their original music. Antonina plays a few of her creations, then Lea plays some of her masterpieces, then they collaborate singing and playing on each other’s songs! BONUS: If you come to the Song Circle Lea may invite you onstage at the concert to sing a song or two with her!

11:00–1:00 Song Circle $15-25, 2:00–4:00 Concert $15-25, BOTH Song Circle & Concert $25-45 (1:00-2:00 Bring Your Own Lunch!)


LEA MORRIS: SoulFolk Singer-Songwriter, Community Songleader and Choral Composer
Lea’s sound often draws comparisons to Tracy Chapman and Joni Mitchell. It’s no wonder, with her warm vocals, insightful lyrics and familiar melodies. However, as Lea’s compositions expand to include looped harmonies, vocal percussion and other elements, it’s clear that her SoulFolk style is unique.
Born in Washington, DC to a father who toured the world playing trumpet in a funk band and a mother who dreamed of opera, Lea began to sing in the Baptist church as soon as she could speak. As a teen, she started teaching herself to play acoustic guitar by writing songs.
Having shared the stage with luminaries including Odetta and Mavis Staples, Lea is also returning to her roots by composing multi-layered chants and grounding a community singing experience in Braunschweig, Germany, where she currently resides.
