Song Circle

Date: 4th Sunday of the month
Time: 4 - 5:30pm
Location: For Goodness Sake

music

“I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain. What a wonderful feeling I’m happy again.” 

All are welcome for this monthly meeting of singing.  We will sing together the songs that inspire, calm, excite or remind us of who we are. click here for details.  We will use but not be limited to the book, Rise Up Singing, which is an extensive source of songs.  Please bring this book if you have it.  You may also come with any song of your choice or you may just come with am openness to singing.  Instruments are also welcome and may be used to accompany the singing. 

When you sing, musical vibrations move through you, altering your physical and emotional landscape. Group singing, for those who have done it, is the most exhilarating and transformative of all. It takes something incredibly intimate, a sound that begins inside you, shares it with a roomful of people and it comes back as something even more thrilling: harmony.

What researchers are beginning to discover is that singing is like an infusion of the perfect tranquilizer, the kind that both soothes your nerves and elevates your spirits.

A very recent study even attempts to make the case that “music evolved as a tool of social living,” and that the pleasure that comes from singing together is our evolutionary reward for coming together cooperatively, instead of hiding alone, every cave-dweller for him or herself.

Call 530-550-9155 with questions.
