Sing Me A Story is a professional development, community workshop facilitated by singer/songwriter Emilia Dahlin that will take place on Thursday, Oct. 27, from 4-6 p.m. at the Blue Hill Public Library.

- Experiential skill-building
- Exploring the voice (technically and emotionally)
- Embodied play and using body language to lead
- Working with English language learners
- Considerations for multi-cultural groups
- Access to an online resource for ideas and inspiration moving forward
- Pre and post evaluations
Emilia has been singing with groups of young people for close to 20 years. She’s been the producer and host of The Kids Are Alright music series (a partnership between Maine Academy of Modern Music and the Portland Public Library), a teaching artist for The Telling Room and 317 Maine Community Music Center’s Little Roots program, and offers her own singing and songwriting workshops to hundreds of music-lovers of all ages.
Registration is required to participate in this workshop and can be done using the library’s interactive calendar or by calling the library at 374-5515. The cost for this workshop is $60 and will need to be paid over the phone prior to the workshop. We will be in the Howard Room of the library and may have a portion of the workshop outside, so please bring necessary clothing.
