The Big Singing Circle is a singing gathering open to all. An invitation to live big, to share and nourish each other through sound. Guillermo believes in the link between singing and health, both the healing and harmonising effect of group singing for the individual and also its transformative power for the group, the ways in which singing brings people together, erases hierarchies and foments trust. Group singing can be a wonderful way to enhance well-being and unwind from the pressures of the day… Circlesongs are spontaneously composed choral music layering melodies, harmonies and rhythms. Circlesinging is a form of group singing that connects with ancestral ways of music-making. It brings people together in sound regardless of their abilities, inviting them to listen deeply and connect with each other. Tickets £5.00 to participants.
