      An evening of community singing; circular, non-hierarchical,
      collaborative and harmonious. Led by 3 local luminaries
      and one visiting from the East. For voices of all levels of
      experience. Kids and seniors welcome. It's a radical and
      bold act to sing out and let your voice be heard.

      Terry Garthwaite has been leading classes and choirs since the mid-'70s, creating a comfortable
      environment for experiencing, exploring, and sharing the joyous energy of singing and sound.
      Her own powerful music for body, mind and spirit radiates the healing nature of music and
      propels empowerment and delight. Many of these songs appear in her new book,
      "Joy of Sound--explorations in awareness through sound and song." (www.terrygarthwaite.com)

      Kay Eskenazi has been collecting rounds since 1987. In 2003, she published
      a book of rounds and a cappella harmony songs from many lands
      and centuries -- Pass It Around! Rounds from the Soul of a World.
      Kay is the Director of Pass It Around! -- a non-profit organization
      that uses group-singing to support disadvantaged people. She
      teaches rounds singing and guitar workshops and co-directs
      From Women's Hearts and Hands Guitar Camp. (www.passitaround.org)



      Craig Green is a a vocal emmissary with the League of Harmony,
      on a pilgrimage, sowing seeds of community and harmony
      wherever he goes. His seeds are a lovely and wild assortment
      of songs, spirituals, rounds and chants from around the world.
      Kate Munger agrees with Rumi who says, "Let what you love be what you do." Kate lives with her family, sings, works and swims along the shores of Tomales Bay and leads community singing. (Her definition of "tribe" is "folks who sing the same songs.") In March of 2000, she started the first Threshold Choirs in the Bay Area. Today there are 350 women in 14 choirs singing at the bedsides of people who are dying, in coma and newborns. Kate also founded and directs the Midnight Choir, a coed choral adventure that brings lullabies and songs of hope and spirit to the doorways where the homeless are sleeping. In May she will start a new choir for women inmates at Marin County Jail. Kate also leads singing as part of nonviolent demonstrations and vigils, adding harmony and collaboration to the political and social justice arenas. (www.thresholdchoir.org)
