What does FEAST stand for?
Forget Everything and Sing Together! Or perhaps, Feel Everything and Sing Together! Either way, set aside your busy-ness for an hour and a quarter, once a week. Feed yourself with harmony and human connection. Fuel yourself for the important work you do in the world. Join us, Friday mornings at 11:00.
What do we sing?
We sing life affirming songs from many cultures, in a circle. Our songs are layered in parts or sung in rounds so even inexperienced singers can enjoy instant harmony. You’ll learn songs through the oral tradition of call-and-response. No need to read music. If you can talk you can sing!
I haven’t sung in groups before. I’m worried my voice isn’t good enough.
Your voice is worth hearing. Everyone is welcome in FEAST Community Choir. If you’re not sure of yourself, we’ll help. Have fun with the playful vocal warm-ups. Stand in between a couple of more confident singers, and you’ll be carried along. Experienced singers, enjoy anchoring a section, and weaving harmonies together.
Do I have to come every week?
Your regular attendance helps you learn the songs and builds our community. Of course, everyone has other obligations, and we know you’ll miss a Friday sing from time to time.
Can I try it out?
Yes! You are welcome to visit as our guest to see if FEAST is right for you. Drop me a note to let me know you’re coming.
