      Arts First Oakland invites singers and listeners alike to join
      members of SoVoSó in "Singing For Your Life" – a 12-hour year-end
      open house, featuring improvised Circlesinging and interactive altar
      art. All are invited to sing out the old year or just relax and
      listen to the continuous, spontaneous song of closure and renewal.
      Throughout the day you are welcome to sing, meditate, gather, and
      reflect at year's end.

      In Circlesinging, a skilled leader proposes layered melodic and
      rhythmic parts to a choir of singers, 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 attentive listening. Singing
      volunteers are recruited ahead of time to ensure that there is
      always a core group to form the choir. Others will come and go as
      the day continues and the music evolves – singers at all levels of
      experience are encouraged to participate.

      Originated by Bobby McFerrin and Voicestra, this popular combination
      of concert and ritual migrated in 2002 from San Francisco's Grace
      Cathedral to Arts First Oakland. Now in our 6th year, the addition
      of the Art Altars and a café hosted by East Bay Food Not Bombs gives
      the event a distinctly East Bay flavor. SoVoSó members Sunshine
      Becker, Bryan Dyer, and David Worm, along with invited guest leaders
      including Linda Tillery, continue and expand the tradition, which
      attracts participants from all over the Bay Area and beyond.

      All are welcome to drop in and sing or simply enjoy listening, to
      connect with friends, and to make time to reflect on the Year just
