I've been frustrated with my Wordpress website for the longest time, and finally it's time for the change. Things are still in process so please be patient if something seems out of whack. We're working on it!
So a clean slate, but let's not forget what a crazy, and difficult year 2020 has been-to say the least. We'll recap of some of what went on both for me as a performer, and for the studio and it's students.
Sadly, rehearsals for Nine, the musical for Blank Theatre were suspended, and the show postponed until who knows when.

Only then can we become whole, as a community, as a nation, and as individuals.
In July 2020, Wendy Parman Voice Studio was absolutely thrilled to hold an online Singer’s Salon Fundraiser to benefit B. Fli Productions. Rashada Dawan the Creator and Executive Director (and an amazing singer!) joined many singers from my studio and beyond, as we all raised our songs to support a wonderful organization: “B.Fli Productions, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit performing arts organization on a mission to increase mental wellness and decrease violence through the power of music, dance and live theatre.” Rashada is doing beautiful work in underserved neighborhoods on Chicago’s South side.
