ONE SMALL VOICE: WOMEN WHO ROCK inspired by BEAUTIFUL- THE Carole King MUSICAL, seeks to identify fledgling female singer-songwriters, ages 13 and up, in the Dayton region and provide them with a unique singer-songwriter boot camp experience centered around Carole King's message that one small voice "speaking out in honesty can change the world."

Participants will complete in a month-long boot camp experience which will immerse them in the music industry, culminating in the creation of a signature song which participants will both professionally record and share live. The boot camp consists of six workshop sessions and several private coaching and recording sessions, running from Tuesday, April 17 to Thursday, May 24, 2018. Each individual session is designed to cover a different aspect of the songwriting process; collectively, the sessions culminate in the creation and recording of an original signature song.

Participants will perform their original signature song at Downtown Dayton Partnership's THE SQUARE IS WHERE, on May 23rd at Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton. The musicians will also perform at private receptions throughout the run of BEAUTIFUL-THE Carole King MUSICAL.

BEAUTIFUL-THE Carole King MUSICAL follows Carole King's real-life journey from writing songs with her then -husband, Gerry Goffin, and other artists, to finding her own voice as a solo artist after her marriage ended. The national Broadway tour of BEAUTIFUL opens at the Benjamin & Marion Schuster Performing Arts Center, May 22 and runs through May 27. Tickets for the musical are on sale now at ticketcenterstage.com.
