Singing together has long been used as a vital tool for creating positive change in the world. As a unifying force, group singing builds bridges across cultures and connects people to a common cause. Historically, group singing has been at the forefront of change, unifying diverse groups of people to rise up in solidarity. From the civil rights movement of the 1960s, to the singing revolutions of eastern Europe, to the end of Apartheid in South Africa: people who sing together make change happen.
Join us for an enlivening afternoon of group singing exercises, and learn songs that you can take home to share with your community. Together, we’ll learn a collection of songs for social change – for justice, for solidarity, and for courage in these changing times. We’ll also explore the history of group singing movements worldwide, and how the joining of voices in song can build bridges of harmony, creating positive change in the world.
All voices are welcome – no singing experience is required. Please bring a journal, water bottle, and (optional) recording device if you would like to share these songs with your community.
“Mila is a gifted guide. She helps people get in touch with that inner voice that we all have. I felt so fulfilled when I left each night, I kept humming for days!” ~ Ryan Patrick
“I am a shy person by nature and didn’t know that I could sing. Mila made me feel so welcome and comfortable, I was able to let go and sing with all my heart. I’m now sharing these songs with my family.” ~ Roula Ouroumov
