Song and Story Circles
HOW DOES IT WORK? This is stress-free fun for all ages and backgrounds. An informal, creative process. As we go around the circle, everyone is invited--but not required--to speak or sing. Whenever people gather in circle, observers and participants meld into one. Everyone plays a part, whether they listen or share, and there's no such thing as a mistake. While we enjoy our diversity, we mostly focus on the center--our commonality--not on our personal histories or levels of experience. We arrive free of expectations or agendas, and we raise no politics, promotions, or announcements. No one talks over, or questions, another, and the only requirement is that everyone introduces oneself if possible. Whatever happens was meant to be.

This is a show. Unlike our circle events this past spring and fall (see above), the artists contributing to this show will have coordinated with each other ahead of time. There may be some audience participation moments.
This show is the outcome of four Soundfalls Circles, two in-person last fall, and two on zoom this spring. They provided opportunities for any and all heartfelt contributions, not all original works of art, but anything the participants loved. They helped us get through trying times, strengthened community (and made new community), and gave us refreshing ways of looking at our common experiences. If you are interested in being a part of those, please email:
