Circlesinging is a spontaneous, improvisational community-singing experience. We draw on traditions of chant, jazz, improvisation, meditation, and mindfulness to create one-of-a-kind choral improvisations. It is very accessible to beginning singers, but can also challenge and inspire the very experienced!
The fundamental building blocks of rhythm, melody, and harmony are used in repeated patterns, creating music unique to the moment. Circles reflect the people in them -- folk, jazz, Rwandan, bluegrass, Diné, gospel, Colombian, pop, rock, hip-hop, classical, funk, new-age, Québécois, beat-boxing -- bring what is in you, and it becomes part of the circle.
