Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Claudia Hommel, French cabaret style singer/educator, will discuss French art, music, singing, literature and more. You can read about her here: http://www.cabaret-paree.com/

A cozy cabaret. At the tables, scattered "Bonjour's" and "S'il vous plait's." By the piano, la chanteuse Marcelle draws her audience into the latest hit by Edith Piaf or a tune by one of the Americans who's right at home in Paris like Cole Porter or Duke Ellington. Is this really Paris in 1950? No, it's a 21st century American classroom transformed by Paris-born Claudia Hommel to give students a new, captivating perspective on France, on history, and on human relations. Claudia's presentations provoke young people to cross borders of country, time, culture, and musical genre.

Claudia Hommel  is best known for her cabaret concerts of French and American songs celebrating Paris. Not limited to the role of French chanteuse, "Claudia Hommel is a gifted and uniquely versatile artist, with a wide range of roles demanding deep emotional commitment or zany satirical high-jinx and everything in between," writes her mentor, actor and director Alvin Epstein. Claudia's repertoire encompasses French chanson, American standards, 19th and 20th century art songs and theatre music. Her clear and beautiful voice, ranging from lyrical to gutsy, adds to her considerable appeal.

This event is sponsored by Everest Academy but open to all homeschoolers.  Please review the Everest Academy Participation Policy before attending any of our events.
