RISE: Next Gen Voices

Summer Session on Zoom!

Join RISE, an Oakland-based VIRTUAL a cappella group for young singers (ages 13-18) led by Lisa Forkish, renowned a cappella arranger and director of Vocal Rush.


During this two-week intensive, singers in RISE will use their creative expression through improvisation and songwriting, engage in discussion and actions around the intersection of music + activism, and foster connection with other teens. The two-week session will culminate with the release of two videos of the singers performing contemporary a cappella songs that will be learned and recorded throughout our time together. This program is designed to empower and lift up the voices of our next generation! 

SUMMER DATES: July 13th-24th from 3-4pm (M-F)


TUITION: $200-250 sliding scale (limited scholarships  available-- please inquire by emailing lisaforkish@gmail.com)

We welcome youth of all races and ethnicities, gender identities, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds from anywhere in the world. No a cappella experience required.
