Step into the Circle $75
Friday, Oct. 26, 2018 | 6:30-9:30 PM
For singers new to improvisation and Rhiannon's work.
No audition required. This workshop is open to all singers who have solid musical skills, good pitch and rhythm, and want to expand their vocal and improvisational experience. Rhiannon brings new singers into the world of improvisation using Circle Singing as the musical foundation. Circle Singing is a participatory ritual in which singers gather in a circle with a conductor in the center who creates improvised parts for the sections. These patterns are changed and shifted by the conductor so that the singing continues for long stretches, creating a rich, deep and joyful experience.
We will also find our unique and personal sound, working alone, in pairs, and in ensemble as we meld intuition and invention with skill and heart.
