Singing in the Light: Fall 2016 dates

From Singing in the Light, 2012
My dear Full Voice mentor, voice coach, song leader, and all around amazing human being, Barbara McAfee, hosts Singing in the Light, a monthly circle of community singing in the oral tradition.  No paper, no performance, just "a time to embody our interdependence and enjoy the heck out of being alive."

Dates:  Sundays, Sept 25, Oct 23, Nov 13, Dec 4, 2016
Times:  4-6 p.m.
Location:  Art Gallery of Hennepin Ave United Methodist Church

Suggested donation: $10 to $20 (but don't let money keep you away.....)
All proceeds are now going to the beautiful community work our friends at Mar de Jade Holistic Lifestyle Centre in Chapala, Mexico. They are our hosts for the annual singing and yoga retreat each year. Their thirty years of presence in the community has fostered an organic ranch, a children's program, cottage industries for local folks, and vocational training for adolescents.
Our previous recipient, Fifty Lanterns International, is now sunsetting after years of beautiful work...

Thu, Sept 8: Songs from the road with Annie

Reposted from Twin Cities Singing Circles Facebook page:   

Annie Zylstra is coming through town this Thursday night (Sept 8) and would love to share songs that she learned at Singing Alive Cascadia - something similar to Village Fire!

What: Songs from the road with Annie!
Where: Powderhorn Park in Mpls at the South end of the lake
When: Thurs, Sept 8 @ 6:30PM

And a note from Annie: 
You all have been doing so much good singing together these days! Thanks Brenna and others who are helping us all find one another! I am going to be in Powderhorn Park singing by the lake at 6:30 and would love to twine my voice with as many of yours as there will be. I'll be sharing Songs of the West, both literally from the Western bioregions I just came from, but also songs that are coming from the Western hemisphere of the wheel of life--the place of wandering, of mystery, of night, of the cocoon, of unknowing--the place I find myself so fully in at this moment! I'll be sharing my own songs, songs by friends, and wild cards! I hope to see some of you soon. Much love!
