Vocal HERspective Episode 29 – Jo Eteson

This week on Vocal HERspective, we’re sitting down with Jo Eteson, longtime soprano of The Swingles. We could elaborate for hours about her talent and experience, but we’ll just leave it at: she is a living legend. And an incredibly kind and generous legend at that.

Don’t miss Episode 29 tonight at 9:30 pm EST/6:30 pm PST. It will re-air on Sunday at 10:30 am/pm PST and go live on all podcast networks on Monday.
