We invite you to pivot along with us from live creation to virtual collaboration!

 

Wheel Voices: Tune In! is a mashup of original scenes, rap, spoken word, and choral pieces. Featuring a cast of fourteen community artists, this virtual performance weaves personal stories with anthemic ensembles and passionate monologues all rooted in the disability experience.

Music is a common language; it strengthens our bonds and dissolves barriers. In Wheel Voices: Tune In!, fourteen artists showcase their range of talents, collaborating across genres.

Wheel Voices: Tune In! was scheduled for production in May 2020, but was postponed due to the pandemic. This lively community-engaged production is the much-anticipated culmination of months of online rehearsals, innovation, and tenacity. Each performer brings their originality, heart, and spark to the “stage” – so tune in, tune in!
