Our mission is to increase joy and harmony in our community by creating the opportunity for everyone to sing regardless of ability.”
We believe that singing is our natural human birthright. Humans were meant to sing, and we founded EveryBodySings! singing circles in 2001 to provide a place for anyone to join an energetic, enthusiastic group of ordinary people who sing for the pure joy of singing. We truly believe that everyone can sing, given the right encouragement and atmosphere for vocal development. We both come from singing families where singing was a natural, accepted and joyful form of expression. We love to encourage and inspire others to discover and/or reclaim their voice, to express their own creativity, and to experience the transformational power of singing.
We have taken and offered singing workshops with Brian Tate, Tony Backhouse, Shivon Robinsong, Denis Donnelly, Eric Dozier, Edwin Coppard and others.
We have two EveryBodySings! groups, one in Lantzville on Tuesday evenings 7-9pm and one in downtown Nanaimo, Thursday mornings, from 10am-noon.
