VocalPoint’s 8th season has begun!
We are thrilled to be partnering with Walk-In Counseling Center, which provides free mental health counseling to help thousands of people address issues of depression, anxiety, chemical abuse/dependency, trauma, domestic violence and a variety of other emotional and interpersonal concerns. VocalPoint will be telling Walk-In’s story that focuses on how we can hold space for others when they are needing someone to listen without judgement.
We’ve invited singer/songwriter Sara Thomsen to help us tell that story. Sara’s award-winning music speaks of healing and comfort. With a voice rich as the best mid-west soil, Sara’s songs carry you inward and outward—in, to the particulars of your own life, and out—into the shared humanity of us all. Her performance style is easygoing and full of humor and depth, capturing the audience’s engagement. Sara’s music gently enfolds and unfolds the listener. Somewhere to Begin is Thomsen’s most recent solo album. “The kind of music she’s making is well-crafted, sung beautifully, and recorded immaculately,” states the Duluth News Tribune review. “Fans of Joan Baez and Peter, Paul and Mary might want to check this out.” The album is “deep and well written” proclaims The Reader, with “excellent songwriting and storytelling.” Thomsen’s song “Precious Waters” received a Woody Guthrie Songwriting Award.
