Discoveries within the Workshop Today

Today as we sat together sharing our voices there were many discoveries. In the body alignment warm up singers became aware of the connection between the spine and the pelvic girdle as part the singing instrument. During the song leading segment while learning a new song the group made many discoveries about the subtlety of rhythm in regards to tempo and the flow of the words. In the Do Improv, the group found that Do did not want to be at “C” so we sang Do at “Bb” and found our groove, using the new awareness of both body and rhythm “alignment” to create a tuned in, festive, upbeat improvisation as a group.
