SoundScape is a quartet that has been sharing the magic of 4-part a cappella harmony since 2007.
They frequently conduct music education workshops for local schools, Girl Scouts and other community organizations. They have created programs for preschoolers, memory care patients, professional women’s organizations and autistic teenagers. They have worked with NH Girl Scouts to help the girls earn the new Young Women in Harmony badge. In 2015, they were recipients of the Spirit of New Hampshire Award for volunteer service to the community. In 2017, they performed onstage at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord NH, as part of Voices of the (603) - a day-long a cappella festival for middle- and high school a cappella ensembles.
