  • Heart Songs: Lament, Longing, & Love

  • Monday, May 06, 2024 at 06:30 PM
    Zoom


    Gather for an informal singing time to re-center our hearts in community. Simple songs will be led paperlessly/taught by ear by Conie Borchardt, other song leaders, and you, if you have a song to share. Visit Conie's website for the Zoom link!

    Join us. Bring friends. (Signup for the email reminder here; select Heart Songs)

    Songs will be about the human experience and in that way, spiritual in nature, but not specifically religious. This is a space intended for self-care, however that shifts for you in every moment.

  • Monthly Albuquerque Song Circle

  • Tuesday, May 07, 2024 at 06:30 PM
    St. Mark's Episcopal in Albuquerque, NM


    Join Sylvia Miller-Mutia, David Poole, and other lovers of singing from in and around Albuquerque, NM, for a monthly Music that Makes Community Song Circle. We sing together the first Tuesday of each month for 75 minutes, beginning at 6:30pm, with the option to gather for fellowship beforehand. We rotate locations and responsibility for "hosting" among interested participants. 

    We focus on teaching, learning, and sharing songs together in an "oral tradition" style of music-making.  We sing songs from a variety of traditions as well as songs of our own creation. We lean heavily on musical forms that lend themselves to learning by ear and singing from the heart, including: simple melodies, rounds, simple songs with layered harmonies, echo songs, and "call and response" songs.

    We take risks. We experiment. We make mistakes. We laugh. We learn. We encourage one another. We sing. We welcome you to join us! 

    Contact organizer Sylvia Miller-Mutia for more information!
