Singing for Fun for Everyone
May
20
7:30 PM19:30

Singing for Fun for Everyone

Singing for Fun is both a forum for individuals to learn more about their own voice, and a way to build community through group singing.

The workshop includes body and voice integration, calling in elements of Tai Chi, Yoga, and Alexander Technique, as well as dance, theater, and vocal improvisation to focus on breath and ease of movement.

Singers learn songs that explore the vast expression of harmony from around the world. Drawing from her love of diverse melodies and rhythms, Elise might introduce a Brazilian samba, a Congolese storysong, an Italian round, or four-part harmonies from Zimbabwe. There are also lots of songs in English, including songs from the African American tradition, quirky rounds, food songs, Elise originals, and lots more!

All of the songs are broken down into easily learnable parts and become thrilling to sing in a group. Even people who think they “can’t carry a tune in a bucket” in no time find themselves part of an impromptu glorious chorus.

Singers of all levels of experience are welcome.

Music reading is not a prerequisite.

Evensong & Eucharist: Amplifying Queer Voices in Worship

Evensong & Eucharist: Amplifying Queer Voices in Worship

Join us for a night of poetry, scripture, music, & Madonna.

On the eve of the our observance of Palm Sunday, we're holding an Evensong & Eucharist worship service featuring the music of Madonna. This concert-style service will feature local musicians and focus on queer artistic expression - voices that have historically been silenced by the Christian church.

We hope you'll join us.
___
Madonna is the poster child for someone who has been condemned, criticized, and censored by the Church. Madonna has been an icon in the gay community for over three decades. She was outspoken about the need for HIV/AIDS research funding when other mainstream artists and celebrities were silent, brought queer culture and art to a wide audience and advocated for safer sex practices in her concerts when the subject was taboo. Through her long history in the spotlight, she's also received criticism for cultural appropriation, fertilization of gay culture, and other controversial issues. We'll explore her art and controversy - her activism and shortcomings as we celebrate the queer voice in worship.
