    Description:  AWAKENING, featuring LEA MORRIS with IWC and special guest, Manon Voice

    Awaken your ears and your heart with the moving Soul-Folk music of international singer, songwriter, and composer Lea Morris. This special concert will also feature a new spoken-word piece created on the “Awakening” theme by Manòn Voice, with performances by Indianapolis Women’s Chorus. 

    Lea Morris’ sound, which often draws comparisons to Tracy Chapman and Joni Mitchell, is a unique SoulFolk style that features insightful lyrics and multi-layered chants, combined with looped harmonies and vocal percussions. A multi-award nominee and winner, Lea has shared the stage with Odetta, Mavis Staples, and Dar Williams. Originally from Washington, DC, Lea is returning to her roots by composing multi-layered chants and grounding a community singing experience in Braunschweig, Germany, where she currently resides. Lea’s works for chorus are beloved favorites of community choirs around the world — including IWC! — and we are delighted to share a few of these pieces on the Awakening program. 

    Manòn Voice is a native of Indianapolis and is a multi-hyphenate-poet and spoken word artist, filmmaker, actor, hip-hop emcee, educator, and community builder. She currently serves as a HipHop Music Lecturer and Instructor at Butler University.
