Writers in the Schools (WITS) is thrilled to have partnered with Purple Songs Can Fly since its inception. This innovative program provides a musical outlet for the many children being treated for cancer and blood disorders at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers. Children work with Purple Songs Can Fly founder, Anita Kruse, and other professional composers to write and record their own songs.
Through VoiceAmerica Kids Network, Purple Songs Can Fly also hosts an online radio show. In the latest episode teenagers Emily Freeman and Zachary Tavlin interview WITS writer Marcia Chamberlain, who teaches at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers. Marcia has assisted many children to write poems and songs recorded by Purple Songs Can Fly.
The VoiceAmerica show airs online every Monday at 3:00pm PST/6:00pm EST and is broadcast internationally. To hear the interview with WITS writer Marcia Chamberlain, click here and listen to Episode 6.
