Glenn Smith has performed for audiences at theatrical performances, dance jams, clubs, cafes, yoga classes, raves, art openings, and schools since the 1990's. Glenn also leads participatory vocal circles for the community (with his Vocal Voyagers program, held at various locations, including The Live Oak Grange, Santa Cruz Yoga Center, The Hide Gallery, and the Pacific Cultural Center) and at schools (with his Instant Choir program). Starting on drumset as a teen, Glenn has added piano, guitar and other instruments to the mix. Voice has also emerged as a primary instrument because of it's flexibility and simplicity, especially in group settings. Glenn's CD's showcase the range of his work, including acapella improvisations, layered compositions on multiple instruments, acoustic songwriting work, and live group improvisations.   Glenn aims to create containers for creative expression in community.
