Come Sing!

ComeSingScreen1Wednesday, September 9 at 7:30 pm join Barclay at St Luke’s Church (760 Somerset Street West at Bell) for an evening of simple songs and chants from around the world. Ottawa’s longest running singing drop-in, Come Sing! is enjoyed by experienced singers and beginners alike.

Eight evenings of chant

Starting Wednesday, April 15 at 7:30 pm, this well loved exploration of the centring and calming effect of chant drawn from a variety of traditions returns for the spring term. We meet, 7:30-9:00, in St Luke’s Church on Wednesday evenings (except the first Wednesday of the month which is reserved for Come Sing). In addition to well known mantras and longer chants from the East and West, participants are encouraged to make chant out of their day-to-day experience and share their chants with the class. The eight-evening series runs from April 15th through June 17th. Fee for the series is $160. No need to register in advance, just show up.

New LifeSong Class starting January 19

LifeSong is exercise for the voice that opens you up — physically, emotionally, spiritually — to more fully express the genuine, authentic, multi-faceted you. Classes are limited to eight people. As the course requires a high level of commitment, participants are admitted only following an interview with the instructor.

The next class will begin Monday, January 19, 2015 and run for 8 weeks. It is held from 7 pm to 10 pm.

Festival of Light at Christmastime

Wednesday, December 17 at 7:30 pm
760 Somerset Street West (at Bell)
(St. Luke’s Church)

Please join us for a festival of word and song–traditional readings from the Bible, woven together with light-related words from science, other spiritual traditions, aboriginal lore and the sparkling music of Christmas. Lift your own voice in the magical sound-space of St Luke’s as our choir of emergent voices and the magnificent pipe organ lead us in much loved carols. After it’s over we continue the celebration downstairs in the church hall with hot mulled apple juice, ginger snaps and festive fellowship with friends. Admission is by donation; give what you wish.

Sing the Rainbow

Saturday, July 5, Barclay will be offering a one-day “first steps” workshop in Overtone Singing — the ability to sing two or more notes at the same time. In a warmly supportive accoustic space participants experience the calming and energizing effects of the overtones produced by the group of beginners. Relieve stress, soothe the body, stimulate the brain, have fun!
