A term coined by Bobby McFerrin, CircleSinging refers to a group collaborative song created in the moment. This group is for anyone (not just singers) who wants to come together in spontaneous song for the betterment of their soul and their world. While we are not a religious group, we are often moved by the spirit and the magic of the music, and we bet you will be too!
San Francisco Cable Car Chorus
One of San Francisco's most venerable a cappella groups, we sing barbershop classics and more modern tunes in four-part a cappella harmony. Interested men can:
...Practice and perform with a group of talented and motivated fellow musicians-in-training
...Learn how to sing in a barbershop quartet or chorus
...Improve your singing: we work on vocal technique, close harmonizing, ear training, sight singing, and performance skills
...Expand your repertoire of classic American popular songs
...Enjoy fellowship and song every week with a great group of guys, and if you've never heard a chord ring, you're in for a real treat.
Musical experience is a plus but is not required. Even if you can't read music, if you can carry a tune, carry it here, and you'll be singing harmony in no time. We meet every Wednesday at 7:30pm at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, located on the south-west corner of 33rd Avenue and Ulloa Street in San Francisco.
