Headed by jazz enthusiast, educator, mentor and so much more, Lisa Weems, ONE NOTE is the musical arm of Honestly Speaking, Inc. Under Lisa's watchful eye, ONE NOTE established a quarterly Jazz series called the Black Composer's Forum - a performance and educational endeavor dedicated to celebrating Black Jazz Composers. Its popularity and community support have enabled us to expand our programming to other cities, as well as the addition of a summer intensive for young composer training in Summer 2021.
SCENE WORK is the educational arm of Honestly Speaking, Inc. for writers and actors. We offer classes, workshops, and micro-conferences for Theatre professionals to sharpen their skills, irrespective of their levels of expertise.
We have been fortunate to partner with amazing Theatre professionals from around the country to be able to offer education that contains the most up-to-date trends in theatre and film to ensure that attendees have a competitive edge.
We are a performing arts group and ACTION! is the umbrella for all of our visual, film and theatrical outlets. We have an ongoing theatre season that includes plays written by Founder and Creative Director, Nicole C. Morgan., and other Black playwrights that we are in community with.
Recently, we have expanded our offerings to include films and web series written by Nicole and/or other members of the Honestly team.
In addition to formal performances, ACTION! also includes our impromptu community involvement projects and all outreach.
