Experience Musical Sharing and Circle Singing

Nov 14, 2014 07:41AM ● By Erica Shames

The public is invited to a community circle sing Sat., Dec. 20, from 3 to 5 p.m. at St. John's United Church of Christ, 1050 Buffalo Rd., Lewisburg, to experience an evening of musical sharing and circle singing.

Circle Singing is a joyful expression of art and mindfulness. Its roots go back to human’s first utterances and campfires. It is a viable tool for community building as it calls us into heart to heart relationship as we breathe together.

As we sing in circle chants and improvised moments of song—we create beauty while at the same time gather strength for daily life in our troubled world. Circle Singing is open to anyone wanting to experience the act of singing. It is for all of us seeking self and communal expressions of being in the now, with hope for the future, and reverence for the past.

Community musicians JoAnne Henry and Lee Saville-Iksic will lead this joyful expression of togetherness. All necessary materials will be provided. This event is co-sponsored by the CommUnity Zone of Lewisburg and Hope In Harmony, a Williamsport-based music, education and service nonprofit.
