What we're about

We host circlesinging events in Roanoke, VA and online. Circlesinging is a spontaneous, improvisational community-singing experience, a little bit like a "drum circle" for singers. It's done all over the world in countless different ways and it dates back to the earliest forms of human singing. We take inspiration from methods developed by Bobby McFerrin and his collaborators. A leader creates improvised vocal parts and leads the group in fun spontaneous songs. Sing beautiful harmonies without sheet music; promote self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment; and, many circle singers find that it fosters cooperation, teamwork, and community. It's important to listen deeply -- to each other and to ourselves -- and to be responsive to what is there. This is a "mistake-free" zone, for all levels of singers. Come sing with us!

You can mute yourself and sing along, you can also participate in some creative interactive singing activities online, or you can just listen and pretend to sing.

Wasena Park

Circlesinging is a spontaneous, improvisational community-singing experience, a little bit like a "drum circle" for singers. It's done all over the world in countless different ways and it dates back to the earliest forms of human singing. A leader creates improvised vocal parts and leads the group in fun spontaneous songs. Participants sing beautiful harmonies and melodies together without sheet music.

Our circle is open to all levels of singers and is a “mistake-free” zone. It's easy for new singers to participate and also gives opportunities to seasoned singers to grow and try some improvisation. Circlesinging is not only a ton of fun, but it builds self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment and it helps us practice cooperation, teamwork, and community-building. Sing with us!
