If you love to sing and need the nourishment that group singing can provide, but may not have the time or the desire to rehearse weekly, these community sings are for you! We encourage anyone who wants to experience being IN the music, surrounded and uplifted by a community in harmony to come. You don’t have to sing everything that’s taught, or anything for that matter, if you don’t want to. You can dance, just sing a line or two, or just breathe and feel the resonance surrounding you. Each group creates a unique experience. Bring your body, voice, heart and soul and we’ll make music happen together. Downloadable recordings are listed below.
