OneVoice CircleSingers is an improvisational singing community with a spiritual attitude. We’re a “vocal jam-fest with heart,” a community gathering of folks who form an improvised choir. Our leadership is offered primarily by members of SoVoSó, an Oakland-based vocal band.
Wednesday July 29, Vocal Percussion with Dave Worm
Wednesday August 12, UpSwing! with Deena Levy leading (more details soon)
We host circlesings every third Wednesday of the month from 7-9pm at First Congregational Church of Oakland. Next monthly circle: Wednesday August 19.
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, celebrated every year on December 30th from noon to midnight at First Congregational Church of Oakland.
Over the years we’ve become a tight-knit but always-open community, meeting monthly, and sometimes more often, to renew ourselves in song. Please join us!
