The Freedom Choir is a place to liberate your voice and revel in the age-old tradition of singing together with others. In a fun, relaxed environment we create a joyful musical community, singing songs from around the corner and around the world. Directed by award-winning vocalist and musician Elizabeth Melvin, (bio) we explore music and harmonies from Africa,
Europe and the Americas , traditional gospel, new singer-songwriter music, classic pop songs and more. Although we rehearse in a church, we are a community choir that is non-affiliated with any religion or creed.
No audition or experience required! Songs are taught in the oral tradition, line by line in call and response fashion. Written lyrics and sheet music are occasionally provided, but you do not need to be able to read music. You will be thrilled at how quickly you'll be singing with others in
Opportunities for performances throughout the year,
participation optional! We have sung for appreciative audiences at numerous outdoor festivals, as well as civic and cultural events. The combined choirs perform a much-anticipated annual concert in the Spring, with all proceeds going to local and national non-profit organizations.
The Freedom Choir and the AM Song Circle are proud members of the Ubuntu Choir Network www.ubuntuchoirs.net an organization of community choirs throughout North America
that is dedicated to bringing the joy of singing to everyone, regardless of musical experience.
