1. Save the Date: Open Sing Online! June 14 (Second Sundays of the Month)

Thank you to all the wonderful participants from all over the world who joined us for our most recent Open Sing Online! And infinite gratitude to my co-facilitators Jascha and Tom Cabaniss for their imagination and generosity of presence.

Because we find ourselves in this quirky framework of tiny screens in a virtual online space, we have been exploring how to capitalize on its visual dimension, and it is a fun and fascinating adventure to be able to "touch" each other via syncing up our nervous systems through both sound and movement. Join us again on June 14, because you want to keep your expressive and communal juices vibrant! It's so easy to slip into isolation and passive consumerism in these times. Take back your creativity and sing with a wonderful and compassionate community of vocal enthusiasts.

RSVP to to get the Zoom link and details once they become available.
I'm going Live on FB, using a new platform called Streamyard.
Let me know what you think!
