What is Circlesinging?? "This bold experiment in music making is a participatory ritual, allowing a sharing of culture through the medium of music, the voice in all its forms and colors. In an NO-JUDGEMENT ZONE Singers gather in a circle with a conductor in the center. Four improvised patterned parts are given to the Soprano/Alto/Tenor/Bass sections. These patterns are changed and shifted by the conductor so that the singing continues for long stretches, creating a rich, deep and joyful experience. This form calls forth a wonderfully primal connectedness among the singers, strengthening relationships and developing leadership. Singers are invited to solo over this hearty vocal orchestra which requires both courage and musical focus. Working this way stretches both individual and ensemble capability. Because we sing in an invented language in this form, it is accessible across borders and cultures, making it possible to create this musical magic anywhere on the planet."

What we're about

WHAT IS CIRCLESINGING??? CircleSinging is a community oriented, spontaneous, improvisational singing experience, a little bit like a "drum circle" for singers. We take inspiration from methods developed by Bobby McFerrin and his collaborators. A CircleSong leader will create parts on-­‐the-­‐spot, and lead the group in making beautiful, inspired, goofy, or glorious music. Starting with a basic structure, we can variations.Sing beautiful harmonies gain self-­‐confidence, and delight in what we can create together. This is a "mistake-­‐free" zone, for all levels of singers—we sing for the sheer fun of it! Come sing with us!
