The Free Range Singers are back this Winter!
We will continue to fulfill our three-part mission through fun, social singing:
If anyone wants to sing with us, we do our best to support and celebrate their participation, whether they have had years of music making or have been afraid to sing even in the shower.
We sing as a way to be present in our bodies, a way to be playful in spirit, a way to develop heartfelt connections with each other, and a way to keep our minds sharp as we grow and learn.
Our material comes from many sources, old and new, local and international, oral and written, and we seek to express the fullness of human emotion and experience in song.
This growing community chorus-experience will begin again Tuesday Nov. 19, 2019.
--Rehearsals at the UU Church from 7-8:30 PM on Tuesdays. January rehearsals will be 7-9PM and will include two Thursday sectionals (Jan 9 & 16) and a Saturday dress rehearsal (Jan 18 at 10 AM).
--Continuing for 10 rehearsals, culminating in our MLK Day event We Are the Light, Jan. 20, 2020 at the UU Church of Davis, 7:00 PM (call time 6:00).
Every session of the Free Range Singers includes:
--Songs brought to life through embodied practices like social singing, body percussion, eye contact, playful movement, dance, or improvisation.
--Laura's ginger tea and snacks at every rehearsal!
--Website support in the form of rehearsal recordings, videos, printable sheet music or lyrics, and more. If you need a printed packet of songs, please let me know.
--Singing to express your full range and free your true voice in an accepting environment.
--All voices welcome-- no audition.
--Variety of repertoire-- music from many traditions, styles from playful to serious, simple to complex. Also featuring original songs and arrangements by Laura Sandage and other Community Singing songwriters. Much of our material will be learned by ear.
--Activities to build your musical and vocal skills and exercise your brain, body, and spirit.
--Suggested donation: $10-$15 per rehearsal or as you are able. Contribute on a schedule that suits you, in an amount that suits you. No one misses choir because of money!
