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. Our experienced circlesong leaders create parts on-the-spot, and lead groups in fun wordless songs. Sing beautiful harmonies without sheet music; promote self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment; and, many circlesingers 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!
The community-singing event where where everything's made up and the point—to sing for our lives—matters.
Come stand (or sit) in the circle, and our leaders will teach you parts to sing for spontaneously-composed choral pieces. We play a variety of listening/music/singing games, and create safe opportunities for participants to improvise as little or as much as they might like.
Good for all skill levels, shower-singers to seasoned pros, no sheet-music-reading required.
This world needs more song; join in the fun, and be the music you want to hear in the world.
