The Choir

Latest Singing Opportunity!

SFBACC is proud to present a workshop available to all singers.

Singing from Head to Toe – a Feldenkrais Workshop for Singers

Dynamic singing from head to toe engages our awareness of sensations and imagination in myriad creative ways. Since your first utterances as a newborn baby, you’ve always used your voice. Yet, bringing awareness to how you sense what happens when you begin to sing—how you prepare and sustain a tone— is a whole new ball game.

In this workshop, singer and teacher Karen Clark designs lessons in breath, posture, and speech articulators to enhance your experience of yourself in singing.

 The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education uses gentle movement and directed attention to help people learn new and more effective ways of moving. You can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics, and an empirical understanding of learning and human development.

Auditions

Are you an experienced choral singer in the Bay Area who’s looking for a friendly choral home where you have the opportunity to perform challenging music for appreciative audiences?

The choir “delivered up harmonies that were so lush they buzzed and burred in the high arched hall, a testament to their careful tuning and balance.”
