~ Five Week Summer Series ~
Exploring the voice/body connection through song

with Sylvi Alli


Next Session Not Scheduled Yet
Portland location


Learn songs and chants from Eastern Europe and India in this group voice class led by Sylvi Alli.  Each session will begin with embodied voice techniques as groundwork for exploring the songs through creative voice and movement processes. These techniques facilitate more embodiment of the singing voice through movement, breath, vocal exercises, source work, toning, and group vocal improvisation.  Experience the joy and power of singing more freely in a supportive group setting. As a continuation of the Song Lab Spring Series, we will be working more in depth bringing song and harmony into ritual structures.

PREREQUISITES:  Must be able to carry a tune and have good pitch, have an ear for harmony, as well as being comfortable singing in front of others.  In the spirit of group development, if you foresee missing more than 2 classes in this session, please do not apply.
