Recurring Event Event Series: Circle Singing

Circle Singing

January 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Every 4th Saturday

Circle Singing is a community singing and sounding practice, spontaneous and evolving — like a drum circle for voices.

Based on practices developed by Bobby McFerrin and his collaborators, Circle Singing is a supportive, judgment-free space to play with your voice. Leaders create songs in the moment — patterns, percussive sounds, rhythms, harmonies, melodies, recognizable words, or invented language — and teach the parts orally to the rest of the group. The parts layer together into completely original compositions, each song a unique creation, never sung before, never to be sung again.

It’s a very organic, playful, community singing experience. This is a free, open vocal jam where all voices are welcome!

To keep jam sessions like this going, we ask that you consider contributing a suggested donation of $5-10 to directly support our teachers and music school. This will help us ensure offerings such as this will go on and on and on, just like a good jam should. Donate online here or in-person with cash at the jam.
