We started this group for people who love to sing. The emphasis is on raising our voices together. Instruments are welcome, but we also encourage a capella singing and exploring harmony. Here's a quote from songleader, Lisa Littlebird, "It's an ancient, natural pathway– an authentic connection with oneself and the world. When joining voices in community, the benefits are immeasurably magnified. Singing in community cultivates wellness, mindfulness, empathy, and joy." Check out her song libraryhttp://thebirdsings.com/song-library/
Participants will sit in a circle and each person will have the opportunity to suggest a song, lead a song or pass. Bring lyrics to a song to share or teach us something new. We also have Rise Up singing song books.There is no charge for this event but please consider joining the River Rats organization to help support projects like this in our community. The goal is not performance necessarily but to experience the act of singing in a group. No experience necessary!We sing for the joy of it! Contact us For more information.
