Shelley GraffCIRCLE SINGING & HARMONY WORKSHOP
Shelley Graff

Have you heard others break off from a main melody with an enchanting descant and wished to try it yourself? This fun workshop will give you the tools to be that singer who helps to weave stronger connections through musical harmony. Workshop presenter and facilitator Shelley Graff is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, healer and educator. She teaches short, repetitive songs and chants from a wide variety of traditions. While singing in a circle, participants often experience a sense of empowerment and peace as well as group connection. Regardless of singing experience, participants are invited to share their voices in a noncompetitive, relaxed and safe space as part of Grief Awareness Month.
