What we're about
CircleSinging NYC is a monthly Vocal Improv jam session, a community of singers and music lovers, a really fun way to spend an evening. We get together on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 7 - 9pm and sing music that's made up on the spot. It can sound like Jazz, Gospel, Classical, R&B, Rock, Doo Wop, Gregorian Chant, African, Tuvan, Tibetan, Middle Eastern, you name it. An instant vocal ensemble with solos. CircleSinging is a form of facilitated Vocal Improv which could be described as “a drum circle for singers” or “improvised choral music.” During the course of the ever-changing chant, the leader develops and gives parts to a circle of singers, which in turn supports individual solos. Both participating in and witnessing the creation of the music that emerges is an exhilarating and joyful experience.
