A fresh experience.

Loving every moment

BIO
Singer songwriter Arlene Bishop suspected that being with people could help relieve her depression but getting outside and approaching others was challenging. So she used her professional and acclaimed voice to reach out to her music community, writing and arranging a series of sing-along-able songs, inviting active, retired, known and unknown aspiring musicians to join her. The stated goal was to record a live album; the secret hope was to find and connect with her community. She found that her idea resonated in a way she hadn’t imagined possible with rehearsals becoming loving social hubs and audiences filling the seats at the concert series. The result is a 30-person star-studded vorchestra and band called The Spirit of Adventure, and an uplifting album of songs with insightful and funny between-song monologue. The live recording even includes an impromptu three-minute spoken piece that is inspiring others to reach out, too. And the depression? It’s there and a daily challenge shared by many on stage and in the audience, but it’s better. Making Together Tonight showed Arlene Bishop that she’s not alone, and the live album is helping others, too. What’s not to love about that?
