Join us in a magical place where our differences create art!

A cappella harmony singing is beautiful musical form that unmasks the voices and the emotions of singers. Without instruments, good a cappella singers become not just better vocalists, but better artists who rely on their own voices, the voices around them, the song, the arrangement, and what a cappella arranger Karla McLaren calls “the voice of the group.” In a cappella, you learn to hold music differently somehow.

A cappella harmonies also intentionally create differences to build a richer song that could not exist without community. In a time when our differences are tearing us apart, we need a place to become skilled with difference again.

Join a cappella singer and arranger Karla McLaren and seasoned community music facilitator Renée Benmeleh for a 4-week Harmony & Empathy workshop in March!

Renée is a professional vocalist and has been teaching wonderful vocal improv courses for years. Learn more about Renée here: Bay Area Vocal Improv

In this 4-week workshop series, you’ll discover your authentic and collaborative voice while you learn a cappella harmonies, rhythmic skills, and wonderful songs.

You do not need to be a professional singer to join Harmony & Empathy: You do not need to be able to read or write music either; you just need to hear and feel music, and be able to stay on key without accompaniment. Previous harmony skills are also fabulous.

We welcome your unique voice to our community!
