“A fabulous week spent with creative and caring individuals writing and singing. It is truly a magical experience.” – Ken Carr, singer, songwriter and keyboardist, and retired health education, Murphysboro, IL

“When I look around, I see people blossoming with joy and finding a well of talent they didn’t even know they had. It’s not about performance, but that’s what happens anyway, and you back to whatever you do with a deeper well of inspiration and understanding.” — Janet S. Emmons, singer, songwriter, composer of choral works, Santa Fe, NM

“As soon as I arrive at Brave Voice, the experience of love, community, and support is the truth of the day! Every year, I am riveted to implement but a fraction of the wisdom and support I receive from this six-day creative cocoon that is Brave Voice. Every year, I take in the next steps needed for myself to move forward and release those things that hold me back. Caryn and Kelley are guardian angels of the divine. I cannot say enough about this personal, deeply heart-opening retreat.” — Dianna Burrup, singer/songwriter, graphic designer, Broken Arrow, OK
