Singing for Every Body and Soul

For everyone.

Roberta Kirn is a singer, percussionist, and dancer who believes that everyone can sing and that singing together brings us into deeper connection with ourselves and each other. Raising our voices, becoming more grounded in our bodies, and having a communal experience of rhythm, melody, and harmony is a deeply healing experience that can be shared across age, gender, race, class, and culture. When we sing, we feel our common humanity and our hearts open. We are energized and uplifted.

Roberta shares easy-to-learn songs and chants from around the world, including songs from the African, African-American, and folk traditions as well as songs in French, Creole, German, Chinese, Sanskrit, and more.

Come explore rhythm games and experiment with vocal improvisation in a playful and relaxed atmosphere, freeing your voice and your body, leaning in and loosening up. Return home with the resources you need to continue singing in community—bringing the songs you have learned this weekend back to family, friends, and neighbors.
