Corinne, formerly of Madison, now lives with her family in Marquette, Michigan. She has performed for schools, nature centers, libraries, festivals, conferences, & coffeehouses across the Great Lakes region since 1984, accompanied by her "extended family" : guitar, banjo, bones, dulcimers, kantele, whistles, drums, recycled instruments, accordion, (“no, not the accordion!!), --- whatever she can find to draw people together. She has worked as a music therapist and music educator, was co-founder of Marquette’s MooseWood Nature Center and Superior Harmony Children’s Chorus, and currently teaches Arts Integration courses in the Education Department for Northern Michigan University and UW's School of the Arts in Rhinelander. She toured for the Michigan Humanities Council's Summer Culture Tour with a lively program centered around the lore of the Sauna, and toured extensively with UW’s Heritage Ensemble and American Folklore Theatre of Door County.

|Workshop & Children's Concert
Painting with Your Voice /12:20-1:20
People create images with paint on canvas, so this workshop is for those singers who are interested in informally experimenting with some of the colorful and useful ways peoples of the world have used the Voice to paint on the invisible canvas that surrounds all of us! Together we will yodel, holler, scat, joik, and generally play with vocal sounds that come from language and other sources, in unison and in parts.
This workshop is an eclectic look at the use of the voice, with a lot of spontaneous vocal play throughout the workshop with a little bit of guidance from several world traditions... I’d like to quote Tolkien with regards to our path during the workshops: "not all who wander are lost..."!
Come ready to have some fun! Participants provide own instrument. :)
Children's Concert / 11am
Michigan Wolf Trap Sampler: Wanda Degen, Susan Harrison & Corinne Rockow
Wolf Trap is a National Park in Vienna, Virginia dedicated to the Performing Arts. Through Wolf Trap's Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, the Michigan Wolf Trap Program has Teaching Artists who conduct residencies & workshops training teachers of young children to incorporate the Performing Arts in to their classrooms. This interactive concert brings together three singers: Lansing-based Wanda Degen, Susan Harrison from Kalamazoo and Corinne Rockow from Marquette.
All three are long-time Wolf Trap Teaching Artists and all three have performed individually at the Children's Concert Series in the past, but never before all together. Fingerplays and Signed English, as well as guitars, dulcimers & the autoharp will be used to accompany the fun and lively songs.
