“Singing together is an ancient form of community and connection. Joining our voice with others creates a visceral experience of being a part of something greater, rather than being apart from others. Singing unites us in the face of cultural, social, and economic forces that divide us. Both research and personal experience have taught me that unaccompanied song raises the confidence of singers and contributes to their physical and emotional well-being.
In our singing sessions, we will focus on four different goals:
- Learn skills for improving vocal technique and tone
- Learn skills for teaching the songs we love to others
- Learn a handful of pieces to perform as part of our May Day community celebration
- Enjoy one another’s company and have fun!
My hope is that our choral journey this spring builds our confidence, our singing skills, and the connections within our Portland Revels community. I look forward to working with you!” – Mark Douglass, Portland Revels Community Chorus Director
