Singing is the language of grief and praise, wonder and wisdom; we sing the world we want to inhabit, and we sing to understand the world we live in now.
Join Sarina Partridge, Minneapolis song leader and songwriter, for a welcoming workshop exploring harmony singing. Sarina will share original “fresh-caught songs” – simple and beautiful part songs for singing through these wild times. These are songs accessible to singers at any level, that touch on themes of healing through these times, working for justice, gratitude, togetherness, and marking the turning of the seasons without and within.
Materials fee: (Paid directly to instructor during class): none

She feels most alive when learning, creating and sharing songs, and enjoys singing with a wide variety of music projects – Eastern European and Yiddish song, old-time music, community song-leading… and everything in between. Sarina has traveled to Montreal, to the island of Corsica, and to the Republic of Georgia to study with master folk singers, and has toured with the traveling ensemble Northern Harmony abroad and in the USA. She worked for several years as a Waldorf School classroom teacher and before that, worked in a variety of educational settings. She has a passion for connecting people with their own creativity and with community, and uses singing to help folks develop a sense of wonder for this wild world around us. All of us have a right and a need to make music, stretch ourselves, grow, and play. Let’s sing!
