Join the VOMB Squad for Voices’ free annual popup party — with a twist!
This year, our performers are reaching out from isolation to share spoken words, poetry, inspiration and a little history — plus a cocktail and mocktail you can make along with us!
So gather the few ingredients now and on Dec. 10 at 7 pm, you can make your drink along with Voices’ Julie Reynolds Martinez. Then relax and enjoy the show.
