The Caged Bird Sings


Inspired by Maya Angelou’s “Caged Bird,” this show encompasses the quintessential story of overcoming life’s steepest obstacles. As Angelou writes, finding one’s own voice creates a “tune [that] is heard on the distant hill,” singing the unforgettable song of freedom. Unlock your band’s voice with this show!
