Voice Box Sessions - History
Launched in December of 2013, RPM's Voice Box Sessions features established and emerging singer-songwriters and musicians. The Voice Box Sessions, provides a warm and supportive environment for artists of all ages performing original work. Following the featured performer, Real People Media invites singer-songwriters and other storytellers to participate in our open Mic.
The Voice Box Sessions is a unique concert series, which not only provides community enrichment, but fosters the artistic development of young and emerging performers. The concerts, which are open to the public by donation ($10 suggested), are videotaped and audio professionally recorded. We provide performers (at no cost although donation is requested) with a portfolio of audio/video and still photographs which they in turn can submit to music festivals and concert venues or study for personal development. Photographs can be used for their website, social media and print marketing. Video of performances are also shared on the Real People Media website
Rebecca Glotfelty, Executive Director of Real People Media, says "The Voice Box Sessions are a wonderful way to allow people to express themselves artistically in a public forum, and the program is another avenue for Real People Media to fulfill our mission of Giving Everyone a Voice." Real People Media encourages youth participation and often uses the Sessions as an opportunity to train interns and volunteers in audio/video production.
