The Soul Song Circle Singers
invites All Voices to gather and connect our hearts with the glorious sounds of singing.  Part of the Ubuntu Choirs Network, the Soul Song Circle Singers sing songs from around the world that inspire, uplift and soothe the soul while honouring the Circle that connects All Life. Songs are taught and sung that day, by ear, no need to read music. Just show up, share your voice and shine in the love that is singing!

We are currently finishing our 6th season and what a season it has been with a fantastic collaboration with Coco Love Alcorn on December 7, 2019. Here is a video link to the title track of her latest CD REBIRTH.

 We finished the 2019 year with a beautiful Community Drop-in Sing on December 14th, thank you to all who attended to share songs in the spirit of the Holiday Season!

 

 For all current singers we have regular rehearsals on our regular days, times and locations Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays starting January 6, 2020 preparing for our end of season concert with celebrations of songs which tickets are available on Eventbrite.ca

The new season starts in February and please note due to an opportunity for Karen to continue her musical study there is a break from February 26 to March 11, 2020.

All 3 days will be preparing to sing at a Performance and Fundraising event on Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14, 2020

Our theme this term is 

RISE UP - singing songs unification and protestation.

 

Also included for all singers

- 1 workshop Sunday March 22 from 1:30 - 4:30pm location TBA

- 1 Dress Rehearsal Friday, June 12 from 6 – 9pm.

 

The workshops and dress rehearsal will allow singers from all groups to meet, get to know each other and we can practice our songs for the event in

June 2020.

I encourage you to put these dates in your calendars. More details about the Retreats and Performances will come once registration is complete. Plus sectional practices may be called as needed throughout the term to work on specific parts.

 

We also may have other singing opportunities that may arise. We call them S.W.A.T.s (Sing When Asked To) and try to do them if they can fit into our schedule. Performing is always optional but do let me if you do not wish or cannot perform so that I can make sure each section can have enough singers.

REGISTRATION FORM

 

And as part of the Ubuntu Choirs Network tradition no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. As an artist, I have always appreciated the generosity of others who have helped me to do what I do and as someone who supports herself on music I do encourage you to try find ways to raise money to register and invite you to ask family and friends to give the cost of registration for birthday and holiday gifts. No amount would be considered too small. However, I understand that sometimes this is just not possible so I have opened a scholarship fund for those who are in need of financial assistance. If you are interested in receiving from or donating to the scholarship fund please contact me for more information.  Thank you!

Any Questions please feel free to call 780-660-9015 or send a message to porkkakaren@gmail.com

 

Looking forward to sing with you soon!
