STUDENT FEEDBACK Subject: Patrice and Tony for Voiceworks 2013
Dear Peter, Please, from the bottom of my heart, bring back Patrice and Tony Marcus. They were two of the most inspiring individuals I have ever met. Their kindness was indescribable and you have no doubt of their talent. I would be completely happy if you preserved the whole line-up.. Thank you again for a magical experience. ~ SE
FEEDBACK from our boss: Voiceworks 2012
All I've got is Leftover pie - my dreams have all come true! ~ PMcC
Thanks for the pie, Peter & Ruby! We had the most marvelous time on staff for Voice Works 2012!
Held on the campus of Fort Worden State Park WA June 25th - July 1st, Voice Works features a weeklong exploration of traditional and contemporary singing. We offered a daily class in harmony-singing, and individually gave weeklong workshops in Working With A Band and Listening 101.

The vocal harmonies and sparse but memorable accompaniment have drawn praise from such as Richard Hadlock, author of Jazz Masters of the 20s and host of the radio show The Annals of Jazz, who says " Singers Patrice Haan and Tony Marcus (also an ace guitarist) do something unusual: they treat often neglected popular songs with respect, restraint and unerring good taste ". Recently the group was featured on NPRs All Songs Considered, where its rendition of Teach Me Tonight won the weekly listeners poll.
While the music was every bit what we had hoped for, there was just so much more to the performance. The chemistry between you two made for one of the most romantic musical experiences we have ever encountered.
Your voices are like velvet on velvet. like you were born to sing together. it's like one big slow dance where emotions are oozing.
Sometimes your voices are pitched so closely its hard to tell who is singing which line, and then Tony will drop to basso profundo (always astounding) or soar into the stratosphere.
