Why Sing?

• I believe that singing together is a critical and extremely powerful primitive technology that is deeply healing, connective, and extatic. It is in our bones: we sing when those around us sing.

• I believe that the last millennium of dominator culture has thingified communal song into "music": a commodity that  creates a division between "talented" performers and their audiences.  This has caused endless voices to be muffled, monotoned and muted because of the false belief that we "can't sing", largely because of comparison to culturally championed virtuosos.

• We can heal that divide and weave community singing into our current cultural context, that it may imbue our lives with living communion every day.
