gather, preserve, and make
accessible the stories, sounds, voices, and music of this historically-rich
region. Although the project will focus on the Capital Region, this day-long
celebration and exploration of sonic history should be of interest to
historians,researchers, archivists, and anyone curious about exploring
history through sound.

Workshops and presentations will take place throughout the day. Sessions

Capital Voices Project
