Astral Harvest Music & Arts Festival

Sweatin' to the 80s

Sweatin' to the 80s! Remember leg warmers, Crystal Light, BodyBreak and VHS tapes? Tap into your inner Jane Fonda or Richard Simmons and join personal trainer Cheryl Olvera and DJ Relentless in a light-hearted retro fitness funshop! Neon sweatbands and shiny bodysuits encouraged but not required.

Bio: Cheryl is a Vancouver-based vocalist, choral teacher, voice coach, and emerging composer originally from Edmonton, AB. She holds a Music Diploma in Voice Performance from Red Deer College, AB, and is currently pursuing her BFA Music Composition degree at SFU. She has dabbled in performing many genres—from opera to electronica—and is currently into performing contemporary experimental vocal works by local Vancouver composers. Cheryl writes for contemporary instrumental ensembles, but is now expanding into the world of theatre and film soundscapes and working on her debut musical Study Abroad. In addition to music, Cheryl is a Jack-of-all-trades and interested in everything. When she’s not at the piano bringing her strange musical brainstorming sessions to life, Cheryl can be found drinking coffee, sewing and designing clothes, painting murals, making jewelry, doing hair extensions, baking vegan cakes, running marathons, personal training at the Fit in 30 minutes studio, or in her CrossFit gym pumping iron.
