Rogue World wassailing open rehearsals
October 28 @ 2:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to sing for fun? Have you ever wanted to discover your singing voice? Rehearse with us for Rogue World Wassailing this Dec. 1 and 16!
Rehearsals are held 2 to 4 p.m. Saturdays, Oct. 28 to Nov. 25, at Aryze Hot Yoga Studio, 330 Oak St., Ashland.
Ruth Hoffecker, of Ashland School of Uncovering the Voice, brings her two major passions together for this project: traditional folk songs that celebrate the turning of the seasons and creating a singing community where all people feel welcome. Folk traditions like Wassailing were born out of a time when all people sang as part of daily life. We invite you to come experience singing in community, lifting each other up with our voices, making a joyful noise!
We will meet for five weeks to learn winter, Christmas, New Year’s and traditional Wassailing songs. Each session will begin with gentle exercises to warm up our voices.
With music in our hearts and rhythms in our feet, we will serenade the community, first in two public street events, and later going door to door offering blessings of health and happiness for the New Year.
All singing experience levels are welcome – including folks who have always thought ‘I can’t sing.’
All ages are welcome. All voices are welcome. Participation levels of all types are welcome. (Singing everything, singing just the choruses, clapping along, humming, etc.)
You don’t have to attend every rehearsal. Attend as many or as few as you’d like.
Participation is free.
