Since even before the Spizzwinks(?) were incorporated as a 501(c)3, we’ve been dedicated to the promotion of group harmony singing, with a particular emphasis on educating others about our style of music and on partnering with other non-profit organizations to foster continuing interest in and support for music and the arts more broadly.
Fundamental to this mission is engaging with others in our communities. Today, the ‘Winks robust performance and teaching schedule includes a broad array of community-based programming at the local, domestic and international level; these masterclasses, workshops, collaborations, cultural exchanges and music education programs constitute a central pillar of the ‘Wink experience.
During the 2020-21 school year, the ‘Winks had planned a collaboration with New Haven artists chad browne-springer, Expired Mocha and students at the Co-Op Arts and Humanities High School to develop an innovative new music initiative called “sound gardening” which involved capturing the sounds of our City in our music.
But when COVID-19 took us virtual, we had to find a new approach. Released under the alias Dreamvoid, and the culmination of over a year of virtual work, the ‘Winks are proud to present our first collab album!
