That evening, the South Surrey-based musician will lead the vocal performance class at Roland Canada’s Inspiration Centre, located next to King George SkyTrain station in Surrey, from 7 to 10 p.m.

“In this highly experiential workshop, you will learn warm-ups to empower your voice, practice mic technique, and explore your unique expression,” says a post at eventbrite.ca, where people can register for the event. “Bring a song to share or simply sing with the group. Suitable for all levels.”

McCurdy has toured Canada and Europe, and her award-winning songs have been featured on national TV and radio. “As a holistic voice coach, she has helped hundreds of singers of all ages to free their authentic voice and experience the power of music in their own lives,” says a bio. “She has extensive knowledge and training in vocal pedagogy and improvisation, as well as applications of sound for healing and wellness.
