Let's keep singing! Whether you were part of the spectacular spring season of the Rose City Folk Chorus or you just miss singing in beautiful harmony with others, you are welcome to join us on Monday nights. We will be revisiting a few favorites from our performance and workshopping possible new songs for the fall season! We will be singing songs from the roots and branches of the American folk music tradition.
All singers who have taken one or more of Leela Grace's By Ear Harmony Singing classes (or by permission of the instructor) are welcome -- no audition necessary! All songs will be taught by ear (and you will receive audio files to aid in practice). There will, again, be optional opportunities for more challenge (in the form of creating your own duo or trio harmonies for specific songs or stepping out to sing a solo). We will also experiment with larger and smaller group singing, strengthen our voices and ears, learn more about harmonies and how they work, and have a darn good time together while we're at it! There will likely be an informal singing party at the end of the session, with friends and family invited!
There are payment options for drop-in and you can use the scholarship price option if you cannot afford the full price. We need your voice!
In a world that is increasingly isolating and technology-focused, there is deep power, rebellion, and beauty in the simplicity of standing with a group of other humans and feeling your voices rise and ring together. Since the dawn of humanity, we have always sung in joy and in sadness; sung in community; sung in sacred times and in every day work... Only relatively recently has our culture created the false narrative of "talent" and told the lie to so many of us that we just aren't "singers." That we aren't "good enough." It is silencing and damaging. We can all sing. Come experience the beauty born in the joy of using our voices and creating harmonies together!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and/or if cost is a barrier to joining. If you have not taken one of Leela's By-Ear Harmony Singing classes before, please get in touch to find out if you might be able to join.
