Upcoming Events

SONGLEADER at Song Village

 —  —

Santa Cruz Mountains, California

Song Village is held in a beautiful redwood forest in the Santa Cruz mountains. We have three or four song circles each morning afternoon and evening. The circles are lead by guest song leaders or by the participants themselves. Each circle has a theme or genre, like the ones listed below. You choose the circles that interest you the most. Learn and sing new songs, or teach the group some songs you love.

Our gatherings also include fun and rich community building events, including dance, improv theater, heart share circles and delicious meals. Our gatherings are consciously facilitated to help everyone feel included and connected.


GUEST SONGLEADER at Central Marin Singers

 —  —

First Presbyterian San Anselmo, 72 Kensington Rd., San Anselmo, CA

I will be a guest songleader with Central Marin Singers choir!

The Central Marin Singers Choir, led by Marv Zauderer, is a joyful, soulful, inclusive space where we sing easy-to-learn, contemporary community-singing songs, selected for their ability to rejuvenate, soothe, uplift, and inspire. We co-create a safe, non-judgmental, anti-perfectionistic space with the freedom to allow our voices to emerge and blend just as they are. This weekly drop-in choir also forms a pop-up choir at public events, like farmers' markets, where our purpose is not performance, it's community participation and community-building: we invite passers-by to step into the circle, learn a song, and sing with us. All voices and levels welcome! Details:

$20 tickets

Thrive Street Choir hosts special guest Shireen Amini for this combined community song journey and drum workshop.

Shireen will lead original short-form healing and liberation-oriented songs for community singing and also teach several songs with arranged drum parts for all skill levels. Syncing our singing voices with rhythmic movement is a powerful, ancient practice that amplifies spiritual connection and strengthens community. We will address our complex, but shared nonetheless, American heritage as we co-create a reverent and joyful community drum-song experience to inspire confidence and unity: an embodied musical metaphor for a new way forward.
