Description:
The Singing Soul: Improvisational A Cappella
Humming a tune while washing the dishes...tapping out a rhythm on the steering wheel...wanting to hear a certain kind of song to suit our mood...emotional surges and absent minded creative moments. What happens when a space is made for conscious improvisation, grounded in the body and carried by the voice? Magic! The Singing Soul is a musical journey of spontaneous self-expression and creative collaboration with others. We are moved by the preciousness of our own music, our own stories, perhaps for the first time. Join in and raise your voice in joyous a cappella grooves of our own making. Explore both conventional and non-conventional uses of the human voice in the co-creation of authentic music of the moment. WE are the instruments in a musical journey of spontaneous self-expression and collaboration with others. By turns edgy, hilarious, challenging, and deeply moving, each moment is an original composition that is unrehearsed, precious, and irreplaceable.

The Singing Soul holds two themes of focus: One is the journey of the improviser, independently and as collaborator: surrendering to muse, unleashing, connecting with truth, staying present to self and others, creating and recognizing opportunity, role clarity, moving fear into freedom. The other is skill building as vocal architects of music: building melody, harmony and bass lines, vocal percussion, creating counterpoint, soloing, utilizing lyrics - spontaneous and composed, learning and creating genres, and building ensemble skills.
