During this time of social unrest, we would feel complicit if we were to remain silent. We want to be perfectly clear with our former, current and future students where we stand.

What we are witnessing in this time of social unrest is the ongoing struggle of humanity to confront the inequalities of oppressive human systems. This is an unfortunate yet absolutely necessary part of the process to achieve a social order which honors all of humanity. While we are not optimistic that we will see such a society in our lifetime, looking through the lens of history, we are very hopeful that over the course of future generations, the rapidly coalescing global community will demand such a world.

Speaking of George Floyd's death, General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated in a June 11, 2020 article in the Washington Post:

“His death amplified the pain, the frustration, the fear that so many of our fellow Americans live with day in and day out. The protests that have ensued speak not only to his killing, but to the centuries of injustice toward African Americans.”

And a friend recently sent us an article from the blogger, Seth Godin, in which he states:

“The systemic, cruel and depersonalizing history of Black subjugation in my country has and continues to be a crime against humanity. It’s based on a desire to maintain power and false assumptions about how the world works and how it can work. It’s been amplified by systems that were often put in place with mal-intent, or sometimes simply because they felt expedient. It’s painful to look at and far more painful to be part of or to admit that exists in the things that we build.”

And lastly, Dr. John Wilkerson (Kerry’s father), stated in his sermon on May 31, 2020:

"The reign of God is wherever the poor and marginalized are lifted up, and their needs are met, rather than being ignored or treated with disdain by privileged people who are in control, politically, socially, racially and economically. Centuries of biblical interpretation have attempted to spiritualize or minimize the reality that the bible is a book by, about and for the poor and marginalized peoples of the world. It not only says that God blesses and loves such victims of oppressive human systems but also that such people are in fact God’s agents and leaders in rejecting and dismantling such systems built upon oppression and inequality.”

Through the years, we cannot count how many students and/or parents of students have thanked us for providing a ‘safe place’ for them to learn and grow in their singing. We feel this is, by far, the highest compliment we have ever received.

The Talamantes Wilkerson Voice Studio is open to all, closed to none. We like to think of ourselves as a small studio with a big heart. Regardless of country of origin, immigration status, race, creed, religion or sexual orientation, all are welcome to join us in our continuous effort to create an inclusive community that calls, equips and sends singers into this world to be a strong voice for all of humanity.

We truly believe the power of singing and the universal language of music are capable of transforming the world in which we live for the better.

Kerry Wilkerson

Together in Song: A Virtual Choral Festival

Together in Song is a Virtual Choral Festival created as an educational outreach initiative by the Talamantes Wilkerson Voice Studio designed for singers of all ages and stages (rising high school and up) to focus on applying healthy, sustainable vocal techniques to choral singing.

Our keynote speaker, Catherine Dehoney (President & CEO of the national choral service organization, Chorus America), will discuss the near term future of choral singing as we live through a global pandemic and how we not only will survive this period in history but also how we will thrive as a result of this time in isolation. Danielle and Kerry will lead two workshops on vocal health, there will be a social hour each afternoon and a time for sharing music with each other each evening. Other guest speakers include nationally renowned author, Monica Reinagel, widely known as the 'Nutrition Diva' as she is a trained classical singer and certified nutritionist, and Washington DC based composer, Henry Dehlinger, who is now emerging as one of our country's finest current choral composers. As we continue to observe stay at home precautions, physical distancing and limited face to face interactions, we are delighted to provide this opportunity for strengthening our community of vocal artists!!

The festival will take place during two weeks in July; 6-10 or 13-17. You choose which week to participate. Each identically programmed week will be limited to 16 singers and will include two private voice lessons, a keynote address from Catherine Dehoney, two sessions on vocal health led by Danielle & Kerry, a session led by Monica Reinagel on nutrition as it pertains to healthy singing and our final session led by composer, Henry Dehlinger. There also will be informal ‘coffee hours’ each afternoon led by Kerry & Danielle, where participants can ask questions, get to know each other and discuss common issues related to vocal health, technique and the music we will be studying. Each evening will provide an opportunity to gather, rehearse and/or sing for each other. The festival will culminate by each singer recording their vocal line for a virtual choir of all 32 participants!! Approximately two weeks following the close of the festival, there will be a watch party of our virtual choral program.

Over the course of your week with us, you will sing and learn about music representing six centuries of choral literature. We will study and sing repertoire from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, 20th and 21st centuries. Vocal techniques, styles and traditions will build from period to period until we reach our current era; thereby applying all choral techniques to music of the great masters to a stunning work written by our dear friend, Henry Dehlinger.

Registration opens June 1 and closes June 30; or until all slots are filled. For more information and to apply, email [email protected]. Please share with anyone you think may be interested!


We were thrilled to be invited by to give a talk on vocal health to four of their classes this past week. Go forth, hydrate, and sing!
