Join Us for Sing For Your Life 2013!


Sing For Your Life 2013 Is Nearly Here!

SFYL13 Postcard FrontOur Twelfth Annual much beloved 12-hour Circlesing, co-sponsored by First Congregational Church of Oakland, will once again fill the air with song on Monday, December 30th, from Noon to Midnight.

All are welcome to join the circle and sing, relax and listen or catch up with friends, enjoy some light fare from East Bay Food Not Bombs, and celebrate the end of the year in our improvised choir.

Join us as we sing out the old year and set our intentions for the new one. Bring a friend and make some special memories to share for 2014 and beyond. If you are new to Circlesinging, and want to know more about what’s involved, surf on over here for details.

Leaders and Schedule

The core of this event is the Circlesong, in which the music goes on nonstop for the full 12 hours. As always, our friends from SoVoSó will hold the center, and there are always fun surprises that pop up on the schedule for the day, so do stay tuned here for news as it becomes available.

How You Can Help

This event is run almost entirely on volunteer energy – if you’d like to join our crew, make SFYL13 Postcard Backnew friends, and have a lot of fun behind the scenes, please do drop us a note: is the place to do that, and we’ll get right back to you with some ways you can pitch in. Thanks!

Our costs are low, but they are real! We don’t have big sponsors or big ticket prices to meet our expenses, so we rely on what you can contribute – either at the door or in advance. Our suggested donation at the door is $15, but no-one is ever turned away for lack of funds. If you’d like to make our day and donate in advance, so much the better! Thanks again!

2013 Spiral Dance Postcard

 “With our ancestors, we weave the web of connection
to protect and regenerate Life’s resilience!”

This year we are again delighted to join with Reclaiming as community partners, sharing the love between Sing For Your Life and their 34th Annual Spiral Dance. This sister event takes place on Saturday October 26, and is a great tradition to pair with ours.

We hope we’ll see you at both events!
