Singing for Social Change

Sunday, March 5th, 2-5 pm

Join us for an enlivening afternoon of group singing exercises, and learn songs that you can take home to share with your community. Together, we’ll learn a collection of songs for social change – for justice, for solidarity, and for courage in these changing times. We’ll also explore the history of group singing movements worldwide, and how the joining of voices in song can build bridges of harmony, creating positive change in the world. All voices are welcome – no singing experience is required.

The Big Sing!

Sunday, December 11, 2-4 pm

Come out to sing in celebration, as we join voices in support of the p.i.n.e. project. Together we’ll share a lively afternoon of easy-to-learn songs that nourish the soul and uplift the spirit. The Big Sing is our final event of the fall choir season, and a celebration of the songs that we’ve learned together each week. We can’t wait to share these songs with our broader community, and invite you to join in on the fun. All voices are welcome, and no singing experience is required.
