Welcome to the Online Home of OneVoice CircleSingers
OneVoice CircleSingers is an improvisational singing community with a spiritual attitude. We are a “vocal jam-fest with heart.”
We are a community gathering of folks who form an improvised choir, with leadership primarily from members of SoVoSó, an Oakland-based vocal band.
Arts First Oakland launched us in 2002 as the Oakland revival of an annual tradition – “Singing For Your Life” – that began with Bobby McFerrin and Voicestra at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral.
Now known as Sing For Your Life, this annual event is a non-stop 12-hour choral improvisation, every year on December 30th from noon to midnight at First Congregational Church of Oakland. Curious?

Over the years we have become a tight-knit but always-open community, meeting monthly and sometimes more, to renew ourselves in song.
