We’re excited to announce our 3rd season of Almost Live Online Zoom events, hosted by Amy Amantea with special guests.
The VocalEye virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm Pacific Time for socializing. Amy’s official welcome begins at 6:45 pm with a pre-show introduction. The feature presentation begins at 7 pm, followed by Q and A with guests, a prize draw and conversation.
Almost Live events are designed to be accessible for people who are blind and partially sighted, but all are welcome to join us. Events are free and registration is required for first-time attendees. You can sign up for one event or the whole season.
