Grafted: a Concert directed by Lisa Blasi

We are celebrating the lives of refugees right here in the Phoenix area. Brevity Chorus will be partnering with local refugee musicians, the Welcome to America Project, Lutheran Social Services, and New Empowerment for Refugees. Through music, storytelling, dance, and song, we hope to bring awareness and celebration to the lives of these incredible, resilient men and women who now call America home. As these refugees from around the globe bring their unique culture to America, we realize that we have much to learn from them. We hope you will join us for this inspirational, one-of-a-kind event, Grafted!

Why Chorus?

Have you heard that when a group of people sing together, their heartbeats align? That is such a beautiful representation of what community art does to bridge gaps between people. Our chorus is about sharing musical pieces from different cultures and eras to celebrate what connects us all: our humanity.

Meet the Director

A New York native, Lisa Blasi moved to the Valley of the Sun to study Music at Arizona State University where she completed her Undergraduate and Graduate degrees in Music Education. Lisa also received all three levels of Orff training at ASU. She has had the privilege of teaching K-12th Grade Music in various school settings throughout Arizona. In 2015, she was awarded a grant to open up a performing arts school for underprivileged students in Mesa called Bellas Artes Performing Arts School. Lisa is passionate about teaching proper vocal technique with an Orff and Kodaly emphasis and is currently writing a curriculum on creating an active and engaging elementary choral classroom. She greatly enjoys the opportunity to share ideas from her teaching experience with fellow music teachers at National Conferences and Orff chapters across the country.  Lisa believes that movement and kinesthetic awareness greatly aid the developing voice causing it to grow and flourish.

I was walking into this knowing nothing, but Lisa’s a good teacher and I don’t feel that nervous here! We’re not working on super complicated stuff – it’s just fun and easy enough to do.
