Read Muskegon Presents: Vox Vidorra & The EduKators

Join us at the Frauenthal Center for Performing Arts on Saturday, May 21st for a great night of music by two talented West Michigan bands. All event proceeds will support Read Muskegon’s mission of providing free literacy programs to the over 21,000 low literacy adults in our county.

Vox Vidorra (voxvidorra.com) is a four person indie/soul quartet from Grand Rapids whose name means “the voice of the life you were meant to live.”   Their recent album, Promise Land, won the 2016 Jammie Album of the Year and was selected as the featured song of Art Prize 2015.

“…a singularly infectious mix of soul, rock and jazz.” – localspin.com

“…Vox Vidorra wowed the audience with their energetic, soulful live performance.” – Tom Stankard, Daily Globe.

“Vox Vidorra craft rich, colorful soul songs with flecks of jazz and indie rock” – revuewm.com

“Vox Viodorra will get you to put that cell phone down.” –mlive.com

The Edukators spend their spare time as teachers and administrators in Muskegon County schools.  Playing a blend of old and new favorites, they’ve filled venues like the Howmet Playhouse in support of great causes and a good time. There’s nothing better than discovering your biology teacher leads a secret life as a rock star!

2016 Tutor Training Dates

Read Muskegon relies on volunteers to provide the majority of our services.   From 1-1 tutoring, to providing support in one of our classes, to helping at a family literacy event, there are a variety of ways you can make a difference.  You don’t need to be a teacher to volunteer, just a desire to help someone change their life through the gift of improved literacy.  We provide extensive training and ongoing support to all of our volunteers.

 

For more information, contact Sarah Klassen at 231-766-5040.
