Currently, Elise is teaching at the Candler Park Yoga Studio, and the next 6-week session runs Monday evenings 7:30 – 8:45 p.m., Oct. 12 – Nov. 23.
“My voice is my sword,” says Atlanta singer/songwriter Elise Witt, who celebrates the release of her 12th CD with a concert at Oakhurst Baptist Church on Thursday, October 1 at 7 p.m. “I think this is my most activist album yet.”
Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Elise Witt has spent her entire adult life making a living as a singer. Those with deep Atlanta roots will remember her band from the ’80s, Elise Witt and the Small Family Orchestra, a staple act at community events and social justice demonstrations.
Elise Witt is the recipient of the William L. Womack Creative Arts Award, which acknowledges artistic expression of a person or group that is using their talent to build bridges of understanding between diverse communities.
