and brings us together as community.

Singing for Fun is both a forum for individuals to learn more about their own voice, and a way to build community through group singing. The workshop includes body and voice integration, calling in elements of Tai Chi, Yoga, and Alexander Technique, as well as dance, theater, and vocal improvisation to focus on breath and ease of movement. Singers learn songs that explore the vast expression of harmony from around the world. Drawing from her love of diverse melodies and rhythms, Elise might introduce a Brazilian samba, a Congolese storysong, an Italian round, or four-part harmonies from Zimbabwe. There are also lots of songs in English, including songs from the African American tradition, quirky rounds, food songs, Elise originals, and lots more! All of the songs are broken down into easily learnable parts and become thrilling to sing in a group. Even people who think they “can’t carry a tune in a bucket” in no time find themselves part of an impromptu glorious chorus. Singers of all levels of experience are welcome. Music reading is not a prerequisite. View the Event Details...|
