Voices with Visions – JCR’s Hip Hop Club

Voices with Visions is the name of the new music club that started up last year at J Clarke Richardson Collegiate in Ajax, ON. Here students focus on song writing, beat making, and preforming. Mrs.Murry has been heavily involved with everything the group does from field trips to volunteer opportunities around the community. We interviewed her to find out more on what Voices with Visions is all about. Overall, with all that’s been accomplished so far Voices with Visions has been nothing but an impressive and thrilling new club at J Clarke Richardson. The club provides a safe creative space for students to construct music and get involved with their community. The Club will be meeting every Monday in room 3150. I cant wait to see these visions coming to life within the following year.
