We are a community oriented, holistic choir, focused on deep listening, inclusion, harmony and play as means of connecting with ourselves, each other, and the music. We sing songs of healing, wholeness, and playfulness from around the world and across time, knowing that as we approach music from other cultures with respect and care, we can learn about one another’s experiences upon this planet, and deepen our own empathy. We are part of the international Ubuntu Choirs Network and practice the ubuntu philosophy in our choir: I am because we are. What happens to me affects you, and what happens to you affects me. We are all in this together, and all belong in harmony with one another. Come experience the joyful, soul-filled song circle practice that’s going on its 4th year!
We sing songs from a number of sources and cultural traditions, in simple yet lush harmonies.
We don’t use sheet music; Kaitie teaches by oral tradition/call and response, breaking each song down into sections as we learn them. New singers are always welcome! No experience necessary.
The first fall meeting is a drop-in opportunity for anyone interested in experiencing the choir before committing to the session; however, if you’re not able to start on September 19th, please contact Kaitie to ask about joining us a little later.
The Living Room Choir is a culture of joy, stress-reduction, and meaningful connection with self and others.
