CIRCLE Interfaith Choir

Community

4:45 pm - 6:45 pm

Location: TBA

Contact: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Does sweet music thrill your soul? Come sing with the CIRCLE interfaith choir!

Our first meetings are Oct. 23 and Nov. 14. Thereafter, we’ll meet every other week—although if you are unable to come to every meeting, do not let that deter you from coming to those that you can make it to!

Contact Vera Broekhuysen if you think you would be interested in joining.

The CIRCLE choir is a non-auditioned choir that does not depend on musical literacy or prior choral experience. We meet a couple of times a month to share, and study together, repertoire from our sacred music traditions. All participants are encouraged to bring music that speaks to them, to teach it to the group, and to lead discussions around it. Starting from points of similarity—musical similarity, a common text, such as a psalm, or a shared topical theme, such as thanksgiving—we explore our aesthetic and emotional and theological reactions to hearing, and then participating in, music of other faith traditions as well as our own. We begin the year by establishing our comfort zone, boundaries, tenets, and trust as a group, and then work to investigate and sometimes challenge ourselves and our reactions. Musical conversation sparks and encapsulates theological conversation. The CIRCLE choir sings and leads workshops at CIRCLE events throughout the school year.
