Get into the circle and step out of the box!
Focus : Sing together, share and exchange with your voice and creativity. All levels.
Investment : Monthly presence for the pleasure of the moment.
Content : A circle or a round...
We gather together and each voice speaks to the other, creating a circle of song. We play and listen to others and ourselves... We sing... As simple as that! We move and create in polyphony.
Following a repeated rhythm on a loop, the melodies make an instinctive harmony according to the mood, improvisations, and various colours.
This kind of practice focuses on the vocal instrument; it’s liberating and develops confidence in a relaxed setting. A total fitness of sorts!
Along the road we also acquire a good foundation in rhythm and vocal improvisation.
No prior musical knowledge required. Each person will grow and nourish others from the contact.
No concerts.

Ages 15+, teens & adults.
2hr/month, minimum of 7 participants.
CHF 150.- / year.
