 Yosemite Songwriting Retreat Fundraiser 

Effiewith Effie Passero from American Idol

Friday, August 10 from 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

$10.00

Come for an enchanting evening of music and help raise money for the Yosemite
Songwriting Retreat scholarship fund. Dinner by Matsumoto Samurai’s Kitchen and
drinks will be available at 6:00 p.m. with an open mic at 6:30 p.m. Main show at 7:30 p.m.

Effie Passero is a 26-year-old singer/songwriter whom you might have seen very recently
on American Idol. She has been singing and playing her piano since 5 years old and has
no intention of stopping any time soon. A classically trained singer, Effie decided to change
her path into songwriting and has delved into all sorts of genres including soul, blues, jazz,
EDM, and pop. She was lucky enough to be a backup vocalist for Leonard Cohen’s last
album, and after that opportunity, has loved session work and wants to make a career
out of that by one day working for Disney in voice over and session singing. She is currently
working on an album called “Better” and cannot wait to share her original music with
everyone, hoping to release it in the early fall.

This event will also include and open mic and performances by retreat coordinators
Adam Burns Music and Gail Dreifus. The scholarship fund enables extension of all the magical
experiences that the retreat provides to artists who would not otherwise be able to afford it.

At: Sierra Meadows, 46516 Opah Drive, Ahwahnee
