- Join the Circle -- Singing for Your Life!
Circlesinging Workshop, led by Bryan Dyer of SoVoSó and Street Sounds
Arts First Oakland, in collaboration with East Bay Church of Religious
Science, continues its series of six monthly Circlesinging workshops.
The next workshop will be held on Saturday, October 4, 2?4 pm at East
Bay Church of Religious Science in Oakland, and will be led by Bryan
of SoVoSó, the Oakland-based a cappella world music and jazz sextet.
If you haven't experienced music at East Bay Church yet, you're in for a
powerful two hours - don't miss this chance to circle up with some of
the East Bay's most inspired voices!
Circlesinging is a vocal improvisation technique in which a circle of
singers takes melodic and rhythmic cues (parts) from a skilled leader,
together creating songs unique to the moment. As the leader cues out old
parts and introduces new ones, the song continues and changes without
stopping, at times supporting individual solos, always grounded in
listening. Participants are welcome at any level of singing experience.
