Our Facilitators of Song:
Tembre de Carteret:
Tembre has been leading men, women and children in song in Ireland for 20 years. As a singer she feels blessed that she has been able to have music as her passion and her job for so many years, leading communities, families, choirs and students in song. Now leading virtual online. Her roles are as a choir leader, community musician, mentor, early years music educator and performer has brought heart, spirit and joy to many through the years and especially since Lockdown in 2020. Tembre leads in a natural organic way, creating a safe, held and fun space, inclusive of heart and exploration. Tembre has a love and passion for singing, easy melodies and harmonies that are accessible to all. She will be hosting this event for us all from her home in County Clare where she lives with her family.
Te “Tee” Martin (they/them) is a community organizer, song-keeper, and wild friend of the earth. They live on Chochenyo Ohlone land in oakland, california where they co-organize Thrive Street Choir and gather outside nightly to sing with neighbors. Te believes deeply in the power of song to build resilience and to inspire change. Te has sung on stilts with the Carnival de Resistance in Philadelphia and has trained American Conservatory Theater & San Francisco’s Circus Center. Te is currently working on their first original musical album.
Una is a musician and choir leader based in Belfast where she works with various groups of singers of all ages. A firm belief that ‘music is a joy that everyone should access’ underpins her work. Una arranges and adapts material to suit the people that she works with so that everyone can participate, no matter their level of experience. Although new to the world of on-line choirs (aren’t we all?), Una has enjoyed sharing and exploring different ways to make these experiences fun and entertaining for all involved.
The three of us appreciate that at this time it may challenging financially, emotionally and physically, so we hope this gift of songs brought to your home will be nourishing for you and your family.
