The CIRCLE: A gathering for all singers

Sounds Good Studios (map)

Love to sing?

Come join in community with other singers for an afternoon of improvised singing and circle songs. This gathering will be an opportunity for participants of all experience levels to come together and find more freedom and playful expression in singing and voice. Using tools of improvisation championed by teachers like Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon, singers will expertly lead through a series of games and exercises to find a deeper connection within and with the collective. Once the group is "warmed-up," circle singing will be the conduit for fun and spontaneous song.

All voices are welcome.

No experience is necessary.

Smiles are guaranteed!

Tickets for this event are priced at $15 (pay online) or $20 (pay at the event)
