Part of my mission is to re-acquaint people with their birthright and natural ability to make beautiful and meaningful sound together… Group singing is one of the most ancient and primal “technologies of belonging” that we humans have been using since our earliest times, possibly before speech itself. When we make joyous and passionate song together, it nourishes our souls and offers an enlivening gift back to the natural world that made us and gives us our sustenance and our very being.
