Free Range Singers
The Free Range Singers are Back This Spring!
We will continue to fulfill our three-part mission through fun, social singing:
If anyone wants to sing with us, we do our best to support and celebrate their participation, whether they have had years of music making or have been afraid to sing even in the shower.
We sing as a way to be present in our bodies, a way to be playful in spirit, a way to develop heartfelt connections with each other, and a way to keep our minds sharp as we grow and learn.
Our material comes from many sources, old and new, local and international, oral and written, and we seek to express the fullness of human emotion and experience in song.
This growing community chorus-experience will begin again the week of March 7, with an 8-week session of Tuesday evening meetings titled Inside A Song.
--Rehearsals at the UU Church from 7-8:30 PM Tuesdays, Mar. 7 to Apr. 25.
--Performance at the Village Homes Performers' Circle on Mon. Apr 24.
--Suggested singer donation to participate $80-$120, or as you are able.
This session will feature improvisation and facilitated songwriting! Add your own words! Make up your own tunes! Create a new song or chant with a friend!
Every session of the Free Range Singers includes:
--Laura's ginger tea and snacks at every rehearsal!
--Website support in the form of rehearsal recordings, videos, printable sheet music or lyrics, and more. If you need a printed packet of songs, please let me know.
--Singing to express your full range and free your true voice.
--All voices welcome-- no audition.
--Variety of repertoire-- music from many traditions, styles from playful to serious, simple to complex. Also featuring original songs and arrangements by Laura Sandage or other local songwriters. Much of our material will be learned by ear.
--Activities to build your musical skills and exercise your brain, body, and spirit.
--Suggested donation: $10-$15 per rehearsal or as you are able. Contribute on a schedule that suits you, in an amount that suits you. No one misses choir because of money!
