|SINGchronicities are occasional, ad hoc community singing events featuring whoever wants to get together and have fun singing an eclectic mix of short multi-part songs from near and far.|
Uniting our voices in harmony, we create a sense of belonging that nourishes our hearts and connects us deeply to one another.
We believe that everyone can sing and that singing together is our birthright, regardless of musical background.
We believe that through sharing the joy of our mingled voices, we can glory in diversity, bridge differences, and celebrate one another as we are.
No singing experience is required – just a desire to sing together in harmony. We sing for the delight it brings us, in an atmosphere that is fun, relaxed, and accepting. We are not affiliated with any other group, including any religion or spiritual group.
HOW WE ROLL
Generally we use call-and-response to learn songs, though we may also provide sheet music or written words. We choose songs that you can weave into your daily life, and take home to share with your friends and family.
We are philosophically aligned with the Ubuntu Choir Network, a global community of choirs who believe that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining voices in song. Ubuntu is a Zulu word, meaning “I am because we are”. In this spirit, Ubuntu choirs seek to create a world in which we listen deeply to those around us, celebrate diversity, trust in our voices and bring them forward on behalf of harmony, peace, and beauty.
WHERE WE’RE AT
Generally, we’re happening somewhere in the vicinity of Eastsound, WA, on Orcas Island. See map.
