Lake Claire neighbors know Elise for her Impromptu Glorious Chorus™ community singing classes and workshops, which she has taught in our neighborhood since she moved to Atlanta in 1977 as a founding member of the Theatrical Outfit. 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.
“We’re All Born Singing:” that’s the name of a new CD and book from Atlanta-area composer and singer Elise Witt. It’s also her paradigm as a music educator. Witt will officially launch her album with a concert at Decatur’s Oakhurst Baptist Church at 7 p.m. Thursday, but she gave Amy Kiley a preview. Witt began by explaining how she herself was born singing.
“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.
Join us on Thurs. Oct. 1st @ Oakhurst Baptist Church in Decatur GA to celebrate the release of “We’re All BORN SINGING,” my new CD & Book!
