Anyone can lead!
Our next Round Robin session will be: Summer 2023!
Approximately May 20-August 19, depending on community availability. If you’d like to be involved and get the weekly email invitations as these dates arrive, please contact us. We will also likely have some special workshops or weeks off from this schedule during the summer, so do be in touch if you’d like to attend.
Our last Round Robin session was:
Saturdays, January 7th-February 4th
El Cerrito, CA
Held by Sara Stutz, with Deborah Leeds
We have a fun and casual opportunity to gather and sing, using a “Round Robin” approach during the break between Living Room Choir ANEW sessions.
At a Round Robin, any singers who would like to explore the experience of teaching a song to our very supportive group are encouraged to volunteer. Fear not! Leading a song is completely optional, and if you’re on the fence, this is a wonderful safe space to give it a try.
It’s also a great time to just come and sing in community. There is no obligation to lead. You can pick and choose which dates you would like to attend, and we welcome any and all to these events. Please invite any (vaccinated) friends who might want to come and join us!
Sara Stutz is delighted to be the facilitator for the first four circles (Jan 7, 14, 21 & 28) Deborah Leeds will bring her magic on February 4. LRC ANEW leader Kaitie Ty Warren will join in for some if not all and will workshop new songs!
We are very much looking forward to seeing and singing with you and creating beautiful music and community together!
