MUSIC WELLNESS EXPERIENCE 'CALLIOPE'
'Music is an exercise for our brain and food for our soul' (Dr. Helen)
WOMEN SINGING GROUP
We are a little women's community, music lovers, who gather to sing and heal themselves through music every Wednesday evening in Midtown, Toronto. We call our music wellness experience CALLIOPE – which is the name of the Greek muse meaning beautiful voice. Because yes, we all do have a beautiful voice, just haven't let them free yet!
What we do is help each other relax, meditate, release stress, connect, and feel better. We do that through exploring our voice, the sounds we can produce, breathing, body movement, and finally singing! We start with the simple melodies that everybody knows and step by step we explore more complex songs, musical literacy, and performing with the piano music. We have a goal to perform on the scene in front of the audience as well, as soon we feel prepared and good about that! We are flexible and sometimes we try to express our emotions through drawing while listening to music, shouting random vocals, or just silly dancing together while shouting! The power of our voice is a miracle and our singing meetings are cathartic.
If you are curious to try a music wellness experience, join us at least for one session! We are at 1423 Yonge every Wednesday from 8:30pm, healing ourselves through the power of our voice. Book your spot or ask for more info at the website: www.sunnydayschools.com.
