A former school-teacher passionate about education, Orit is dedicated to facilitating self-expression in others. When not writing, recording and performing her own songs, she has done public speaking, put on workshops in schools and community centres, and written customized songs for those who wish to share their owns stories through music.
Most recently, Orit has participated in a local Winnipeg program called Stories to Song, where she was matched up with two seniors.
One of the organisers, Grant Simpson, had this to say:
".... wonderful work you have done on these projects Orit. You embody the spirit of this project and I am so so so glad I asked you to do the first one so we could learn just how awesome you are at your craft. "
You can view footage of these magical encounters, the process and the result in these two videos below.
