CircleSinging offers improvisation, resilience

PUTNEY-Long River CircleSinging, led by Paris Kern, will be presented on Sunday, April 28, from 3 to 5 p.m., at Next Stage Arts, 15 Kimball Hill.

This "composed in the moment" singing format was created by Bobby McFerrin and his colleagues. Kern has been leading circles since 2013 and says she is excited to bring this to southern Vermont.

"CircleSinging is an opportunity to tune in, listen deeply, shed beliefs and judgments, and tap into something larger than a single individual," Kern said in a news release. "It's powerful. It's embodied. It's bonding. It's healing. It's life-affirming. Be heard. Join in. These times need our voices, our songs, our unique Beings. The spirit of improv teaches us to be in the moment and teaches us the resilience we need for living in these uncertain times."

Register at There is a suggested donation of $20, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. For more information, contact Kern at [email protected]. For more about CircleSinging, watch this video at
