What is Circle Singing?
Circle singing is a spontaneous, improvisational community-singing experience, a little bit like a "drum circle" for singers. A leader starts by improvising a line of music and gives it to one part of the circle. The leader then develops a second part that goes with the first and gives that part to another section of the circle. The group learns and repeats the part given to them. Soon we are singing a four- (or more) part chorus that has never been sung before. This chorus can support individual solos.
In a relaxed, all-inclusive group setting, circle singing brings out nice energy as we create in-the-moment music together. Come, release stress and connect with others as well as the beauty and power of music.
We welcome all levels. No prior singing experience is necessary. Simply bring your unique voice and an open mind. Let's have a lot of fun!
What are the benefits?
We all sing. Whether or not we can sing perfectly in tune, we know that there is something positive -- something very healthy -- in the act of raising our voices in song. In fact, there is scientific evidence to prove that group singing is good for your body, mind and spirit.
