Join us weekly on Wednesdays 7:30-10 pm and select Sundays for a soulful and uplifting musical experience that’s designed to include anyone who loves to sing – shower singers and professionals alike.
Our 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, chanting, 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, a wonderful accompanist Emily Imes, and, at most sessions, we also have a guest 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, Chris Dilley, 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
