— The performance by Bella Vocé Chorus and guests will include a catered meal by Brother's Custom Processing, admission $25 per person. An all-day workshop for interested vocals will also be hosted earlier in the day, though participants must register in advance. Tickets are available at Loyd's Cleaners, 552 Breeze St. For more information, call Jeana Womble at 970-629-9244.

Ruby Blue is a quartet from Denver that placed first in the region at a 2014 competition, while Déja Vu has competed with and alongside Bella Vocé, their four members having performed as an act for about a decade.

"It's a big deal for quartets to be together that long because a lot of times they change things up after a couple years," said Bella Vocé's Jeana Womble, noting that the group's familiarity can be recognized in their shows.

Womble hopes the workshop will attract a number of women interested in singing to hone their skills and show the community what they can do as those in the audience enjoy a catered meal by Brother's Custom Processing.

Proceeds from the show, which has also received donations from Elk Run Inn and Loyd's Cleaners, go toward Bella Vocé's future competitions, as well as the group's youth scholarship fund, which goes toward a female area student whose life has been profoundly impacted by music.

Altogether, Womble hopes people will hear what Bella Vocé is all about through the event.

"In Craig, we are isolated, so this is our response, to be able to offer vocal opportunities in the area," she said.
