The sponsorship will provide a discounted fee for participants to attend a three hour workshop in Moundsville, West Virginia.
The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the Grand Vue Park Event Center at 250 Trail Drive, Moundsville, WV.
The focus of the workshop will be what Ulisse calls the "nuts and bolts of songwriting."
This workshop is being coordinated by Moundsville, WV songwriter Jerry Andrews who attended Donna's workshop in Glenville, WV earlier this year.
He found it to be so beneficial that he wanted to bring the workshop to his own town and make it affordable for students to attend. To that end, he approached Chevron and they were eager to be involved.
The workshop is normally $125.00 per person but because of the generosity of Chevron it will be only $75.00 per adult and $25.00 per student. (middle school through college) Writers of all levels are welcome.
Ulisse's team will consist of herself, Rick Stanley, Greg Davis with a new addition of Kathy Anderson who will focus on the basics of publishing and copyright which is always a major focus in the question and answer period.
Between Donna Ulisse & Rick Stanley they have had songs recorded by Del McCoury Band, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Claire Lynch, Larry Stephenson Band, Volume Five, Don Rigsby, Ralph Stanley, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Nu-Blue, The Bankesters as well as many of Donna's top radio successes she has recorded.
Donna Ulisse is also the author of the book The Songwriter in Me: Snapshots of My Creative Process.
The day will be capped off with a community concert in Grand Vue Park Event Center by Donna Ulisse and her band The Poor Mountain Boys.
Tickets for the show are only $10.00 thanks to the Chevron sponsorship of the whole day of events.
To register for the workshop or buy advance tickets for the concert call Jerry Andrews at 304-281-5776.
