Join our Circle of Singers! Whether you sing in the shower, car or stage the Circle was created with belief that everyone has a voice to be heard. If you have never sung before this is a safe environment to try and make sounds. There are no wrong notes! You will experience spontaneous community created through music.
This year our work has focused on exploring Rhiannon's Vocal River. This book offers a series of musical exercises serving as a vehicle for individual and collective innovation, healing and social change. Our group has come to love intoning and will be expanding further in this direction as we head towards the summer.
What does a typical Circle Sing look like?
When you arrive there is a short period of time to meet and greet. A circle is created by the group. We begin with breathing exercise and meditation. Then we are organically led into vocal sighing and eventually elongated pitches. This leads into a good 10 minutes of intoning (singing long vowel sounds as a group). The group is then led through group games/exercises that create music together in a playful way. There are opportunities throughout for soloing. However, no one has to solo.
This gathering is FREE with accepted donations of $5-10. You are giving birth to Singing Garden's Circle Sing. Our next gathering is Tuesday, April 23 at Dewitt Community Church’s sanctuary, 3600 Erie Blvd East, Syracuse, NY.
