Circle Sing Wednesday, January 29, 4-4:30 pm. Do you like to sing? It’s the return of the Circle Sing in the Corrigan Courtyard (in front of the Library)! Join the group, or just show up to be an appreciative audience. Circle Singing is a community-singing practice where a leader improvises and teaches short phrases to a group. The phrases are layered together and a song is created in the moment. No experience necessary. See this Youtube Video for more about circle singing. Led by HNU music instructor Anne Hegy.
