vocal voyagers on pandemic hiatus - see ya on the other side!
A participatory journey, using our voices to create a sound never to be heard again ... we play with structures, using basic improvisation - short phrases, tones, rhythms - to build a more complex layered group sound.
Facilitated by Glenn Smith, leading Vocal Voyagers in CA, MA, and Costa Rica since 2006! Glenn has taken classes with many vocal facilitators, including Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon. more on Glenn at www.soundseeds.com
WHAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE BEEN SAYING:
"This is splendid fun and wonderful to sing in such a soul-filled way!" – Barbara Morningstar, San Luis Obispo, CA
“If you have never experienced a singing circle with Glenn Smith, it is a playful, soulful off the hook experience in community. SERIOUSLY-SERIOUS FUN!!!”
Wendy Marie, Fort Collins, CO
"I appreciate the circle you create- I am not sure how to express it but it feels safe to me in your circles and whenever you are around to sing my heart out- right - wrong- loud- soft whatever!!! You call that out in me and I thank you for that. There is a freedom in your style.” - Marna Cathleen, Eugene, OR
“I loved it, I didn’t know I could sing! Omg I absolutely loved it! I’ve been wanting to experiment and practice with my voice. To find out what’s in there and how to bring it out. I have been shy with my voice, and your gathering gave me the ability to give myself permission to release whatever is in there. I had such fun with it! I love creating my own Song, teaching the pieces of it, and then conducting the four groups of us. I’m so happy today just thinking about it, I’ve been thinking about it all morning long, and I’ve been practicing with my voice and song. Thank you so much Glenn! Another liberation for Jim!” - Jim Flavin, Concord, MA
“Glenn did a great job in holding space for all of us! Lets do this more often! I left feeling so energized, joyful, grounded in my body.” Bonnie Eskie, Chico, CA
"Glenn creates a beautiful space to allow others to open to their own creativity and the music that is always all around us all :-)" – Amanda West, Santa Cruz, CA
"Glenn Smith has a special gift, an art, a way of bringing beautiful harmonies out of people, getting the creativity to shake out of their bones and into the world through sound! He does this with song circles, vocal voyages that open up all, equally included to be their most creative and authentic selves through song, and the magic of sound creating a vocal community.
Some of my best nights in Santa Cruz were at Vocal Voyagers, Glenn artfully leading us into our best selves with his gentle guidance, soft voice and capable leadership.
I recommend anyone interested to take this opportunity to voyage vocally with Glenn. It delights and brings beauty to our world, creating a sound unique to a group of wonderful people, a magic never to be heard again" -Philip Mirkin, San Miguel, Mexico
“Really loved this workshop - I've been a couple times now and it's magic each time” – Jon Holland, Gloucester, MA
“I had such an amazing good time, and I felt so energized afterward. It didn't take much effort to get this group to sync up and let go. It left feeling grateful for so much healing. Yes! Thank you, Glenn!” - Christo Purdin, Santa Cruz, CA
