Singing/Choir Gatherings

Join us Wednesdays 7-10 pm and Sundays in Spring 2:30 to 5:30 pm for a soulful and uplifting musical experience that’s designed to include anyone who loves to sing – shower singers and professionals alike. 

Our 3 hour sessions incorporate vocal technique training, choral singing, music-oriented meditation, community and relationship building activities, creative play, and musical improvisation and games all within a supportive, non-judgmental family environment. 

Music selections are soulful, spirit-driven Gospel, Broadway, Spiritual, World Music, Pop/Rock with lyrics that are universally accessible to people of any religious belief (no He, Him or Jesus). 

Each session is co-taught by industry seasoned professionals: Artistic Director, Amy Silverman, and a powerhouse musical director. We’re lucky to have many talented and in-demand musical directors and conductors who feel committed to our success and growth. 

Plan to be musically guided and inspired by the leadership of Troy Burton, Scott Murphy, Michael Ferraiuoulo and other fantastic surprise guest conductors.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID:

"Amy, words can't express (maybe I can sing it???) the amount of love and gratitude I have for you and everyone for participating last night. The experience was powerful, healing and joyful. I felt whole and complete in my voice in a way I've never felt before. I've always wanted to sing but haven't had the opportunity to really pursue. It's great the Universe has brought me this one that feels perfect. What a great combination of community building and sharing our hearts through song. I was very moved and can't wait to come back. Much love to you all!!" - Doug Larson

"It was an amazing experience, thank you very much for putting this all together. Ive been looking for a space like this, to express myself, for a long time and I cant believe I found it!!!! I'm looking forward to our next gathering. Thanks again!!!" - Vicky Vernier

    It was a truly great experience. I liked that I really felt relaxed at the end of the meetup and eager to continue on, that is what I need. Also, I feel like its a group where I can let go of my perfectionist ways.

    I love this group, testified to by waking in the middle of the night, grateful for it. The group is brilliantly organized. Amy applies not only sound musical technique, but rare insight into the human dynamic. Her methods tap into, what I believe is an almost universal need for healing within each person, as well as between nations. The exercises she leads foster healing through participation in aware musical experiences. This group is about process, as much as outcome. That it is welcoming to all levels of ability and experience, is not just lip service. There are members who have professional singing and other musical experience, alongside rank amateurs, some who struggle to keep a tune – all joyfully sharing in these experiences - some silly, some profound, but always dynamic and fun . In my not professional opinion, I’d give this group 4 stars. Thank you, Amy – don’t mean to embarrass you here, but this is from the heart.

      Wow Hazel thank you so much for sharing this! I am touched. And I hope that many more people get to join the experience and we can create a thriving and growing community. May I post what you've written on the website?

    Do you need me to pay in advance? I can do that, although I thought I was already registered. It looks like I'm only going to be available on Sunday but its still good. I'm going to the doctor on Wednesday for my back.
