Community Song Circles: Every 1st & 3rd Friday of the month from 4 – 5:30PM at the Fellowship
“Group singing is a powerful catalyst for social change and community building. We sing for the joy of creating something beautiful together in the moment.” Maggie McKnight
Community song circles welcome all voices, bringing together people who love to sing, regardless of experience level. Song circles don’t focus on performing for an audience; instead, learn songs from a variety of traditions by call-and-response, and sing for the joy of creating something beautiful together in the moment. Group singing is a powerful way of connecting with each other, and with something deep within ourselves—and the music we make as we support each other through song calls forth the singing voice that is every human’s birthright.
This transformative experience is open to ALL -invite your friends!
As part of the Fellowship’s Music Ministry program, we’d like to encourage your participation in these circles led by Maggie McKnight. Maggie grew up singing harmonies with her family and studying classical piano and violin alongside bluegrass fiddle. She has sung and played in various choirs and musical groups over the years, and since 2013 has been leading community song circles and helping people reconnect with the joy of singing. She was the musical director of the Arcata Threshold Choir for 8 years, and is a firm believer that singing is everybody’s birthright. She lives with her wife and two daughters in Arcata.
