Well, we certainly are in a new paradigm!
Here we are, months later… We’re all missing the great joy of what we once may have taken for granted… to circle up and SING!
One of the many miracles of these times is the creative spirit of artists. Our calendar will soon be featuring online offerings to feed your soul, uplift your spirits, re-connect you with your Oakland singing friends, and make new friends around the world.
In the meantime, let’s share our intentions, inspirations, and visions here.

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.
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!
