CircleSinging Boston

October 9, 2016 at 4:30 pm6:30 pm

St. Mary’s Church 8 Inman Street Cambridge , MA 02139 United States

In a CircleSong, a leader starts by improvising a line of music and then teaching it to one part of the circle. The leader then develops a second part that complements the first line and gives that part to another section of the circle. CircleSingers learn and repeat the exact part given to them. Soon we are singing a four- (or more) part chorus that has never been sung before. This chorus can support individual solos.

For ArtWeek, join us for a pre-session talk that will give the history of circle-singing, an explanation of the form and some helpful technique tips. The effect: never-before-sung, wordless, fun songs, melodies, harmonies & rhythms. The music may be glorious or goofy, complex or simple. Each circle is a unique experience, created by a spontaneously collaborating community.
