PHOTOS: Find Your Voice, a Multi-Genre Benefit for Turning Point
A busy weekend in Bethlehem concluded with a multi-faceted evening of entertainment at the Charles A. Brown Ice House.
Its mission? Get one step closer toward eliminating domestic abuse through music and poetry.
This evening, titled “Find Your Voice,” benefited Turning Point of the Lehigh Valley, a local organization providing confidential resources to abuse victims and their families. The benefit was spearheaded by local singer-songwriter Dina Hall and featured the vast talents of some of the region’s noteworthy female performers. Hall was joined by Beth Sherby to form the duo, Ophelia, and welcomed youth performer Julia Gross, spoken word poets Danielle Notaro and Basement Poetry’s Deirdre Van Walters, and sister duo Karen and Amy Jones of The Beautiful Distortion (with TBD bassist Jeremy Aguiar).
Each performer brought a different dynamic to the program. Both spoken word poets delivered pointed, yet varied existential commentary on what it means to be a woman, while the evening’s musical performers impressed and delighted a captive audience, using their immense vocal abilities to tell beautiful stories.
