Hello Dear Singers !

I'm so happy to announce I'm returning to Prosser, Washington for another "Siren Salon" jazz vocal gathering.

I've been hosting these events twice a month in Portland for 7 years and it's one of my favorite ways to spend an evening.

'Siren Salon' is a casual, accepting atmosphere that allows everyone to step a little out of their comfort zone, cultivate new skills, learn new songs, and meet other singers and musicians.

Joining us are amazing musicians: Brandon Nelson on piano, Perry Thoorsell on bass.

Bring your sheet music in your key, or send me a note with your songs and I'll locate a chart for you.

And...YES....Sirens can be male. ;-)

Location given upon registration

To reserve a space, email Paula (at) PaulaByrneMusic (dot) com.

I look forward to singing with you!
