Tomorrow, September 24, we’ll be singing in the gardens of Lakshmi Institute in Trumansburg, to help celebrate their 1-Year Anniversary. It is a beautifully renovated space for yoga, workshops, dance classes and meditation on rte 96, heading North, just before Tburg. There will be a plant exchange. Bring a plant, take a plant!

On Sunday, September 25, we’ll be participating in the Honoring Our Grief Event at the First Baptist Church in Ithaca. We will give voice to grief of the attendees who have  experienced loss.

Happy New Year!

Be sure to follow us on this web site to hear about the 4th Friday Circle Sing, starting back up in January 2016, at Fine Spirit Studio on Dey Street, in Ithaca.


Our next sing will be Friday, January 22 from 5:30-7:00.

201 Dey Street : Up the stairs, take the hallway on the right, walk down until the studio is on your left.

Follow our signs.

Follow your heart and singing spirit.

Happy New Year!

A rich and delicous time was had by all!

Wow. Last evening from 5:30-7:00 we created an amazing community in song. There were many new faces- happy ones, gratefully- and lots of spontaneous creative movement and dancing! Every circle was beautiful and I had a feeling that we were surrounded in a warm soothing light. The coming change in the weather, and signs of Spring were themes that kept coming to the surface, not surprisingly. Kudos to those who ventured into the center maybe for the first time to lead. Like I said…ALL the songs were rich and delicious. Endorphins for your Friday evening, anyone?

Someone suggested we host our event twice a month! Once a week!

But we get that every time.

Pictures to follow.
