We're All Born Singing

This weekend is a big music weekend for me!

On Friday, I'll be part of the Opening Concert for the People's Music Network (PMN) Summer Convergence, along with Elise Bryant, Jane Sapp, Sav-B, and the Black Workers Center Chorus, with our host Ethiopian singer/songwriter Munit Mesfin.

On Saturday, at 11:00 a.m., I'll be celebrating the music of Joyce Brookshire with Barbara Panter & Mick Kinney at the Cabbagetown 50th Reunion - live and in person in the Joyce Brookshire Amphitheater!!

Then I'm rushing home for a 2:00 p.m. online Singing for Fun for Everyone Workshop, for the PMN Summer Convergence!

I hope you can join me for one or more of these opportunities to sing!

Twenty-two of my songs have been arranged for SATB, SSAA, and TTBB choral groups by Michael Holmes. Check out the music and some beautiful performances by choirs, choruses, and small ensembles! More info click here.

On November 23, 2019, over 50 musicians and more than 300 audience members gathered at the Chosewood Arts Complex in Atlanta to celebrate the release of All Singing: the Elise Witt Songbook.

Sing along with "Jenny Jenkins," a traditional color song that I updated for our contemporary times. Jessica Lily made a beautiful video featuring artwork from artists across the globe, aged 1-83!

I See You With My Heart graphic
"I See You With My Heart" is a song of Welcome in many languages with lots of opportunities for harmony and improvisation. I wrote it with my students from the Global Village Project, a special purpose middle school for teenage refugee girls, where I use singing to teach English.
