In 2011 Barbara H. Clark launched an ensemble of storytellers called “Women’s Voices” which operate from the Institute of Musical Arts. This ensemble is an extension of her work to celebrate the varied roles of women in our history and society.


Women’s Voices has been one of the most popular group of storytelling performers offered by the IMA, presenting sold out performances like “Digging In The Dirt”, “Back Home”, “Kinfolk are Our Village”, “My Funny Valentine”, “Yes, Mother!”, “Grandma’s Front Porch”, “But I Like Birthday Cake”, “Why We Tell Stories” and “Oh, To Be Young Again!”. The group consists of the following talented women: Helen Brown, Margaret Davis, Barbara Hunter, Elizabeth McClodden, Roylene Walker

, Laura Duncan, Beverly Morgan, Barbara White, Carrie Tyler

, Marion Hinton, Ann Buxie and Johna Madigan.

On Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., the Institute of Musical Arts welcomes back the eleventh installment of our WOMEN’S VOICES Storytelling Concert Series, with their performance, “Fathers, Daddies, & Papas”.

It appears that TV commercials are just now discovering that fathers are parents too, but we have always known it. Four friends who have gathered to celebrate a birthday, share memories of their fathers, after the “birthday girl” shows off a piece of jewelry given to her by her father as a birthday gift years earlier.

Plan to experience the rich heritage of the spoken word tradition with this ensemble group of storytellers who will present performances of original, personal stories they developed in their “Tell Me a Story” workshop. Come and “eavesdrop” on this colorful group of women, and be transported as Johna Madigan, Beverly Morgan, Ann Buxie and Carrie Tyler present stories that celebrate their lives and memories. We’d love to have you share in the festivities and enjoy an afternoon of great entertainment with us.

You can buy tickets online: https://fathersdaddiespapas.eventbrite.com, or by visiting our website: http://www.imalosangeles.com.
