🌹 🎶 Magical May Singings


Dear Friend  

🌹 🎶  Magical May Singings 🎶 🌹  
Happy May! Spring is doing its magical thing here in London, powdering the streets with floral blushes and puffing the tree branches full of blossom.   

On the Magic Singing Carpet this month...  
* Warmly inviting you to come and treat your ears to summer sounds at our  
 Midsummer Melodies Concert on 22nd June @ All Saints Tooting.  
*  Fly over the rainbow with us at Many Voices in Pride Month 25th June  
Vocal Revolution Coaching Sessions - for deep sea divers on the search for pearls of wisdom and magical breakthroughs in their vocal expression.  
* The New Choir Term is blooming marvellously - come and sing!  
* Following a wonderful EarthDay sing of Resolution Song amongst the blossoms, I'm planning a summer Singing Picnic 13th August  


🌹 🎶 3 Magical Things About Your Voice 🎶 🌹  
Magic comes from root words meaning "to be able, to have power."  
When I say I lead choirs, most people immediately declare "I can't sing" and make derogatory jokes about their voices. Yet as children we sang like birds and loved exploring the full range of our vocal capacities - we burbled, giggled, whooped, warbled freely, creating spontaneous songs and stories.  Life happens and our voice-bird can become caged unless/ until we are brave enough to open the door. In all life's distractions, dramas and dilemmas, whilst it's easy to forget, fortunately, it's also easy to remember that our voice is magical - so here's a little reminder! :)  

1. It's a Magical Anatomical Miracle  
There are so many incredibly intricate bodily processes involved in making sound. Our voice box/ larynx is a magical structure of cartilage and muscles, which houses our vocal folds, small but mighty structures which interrupt the airflow of our breath by opening and closing in rapid cycles  This happens a mindboggling 210 times per second in women and 125 per second in men to make just one vowel sound. Here's a video of a quartet of vocal folds!  

2. It's a Magical People Magnet  
Like bees humming in a hive, the word communication tells us that our voices bring us into unifying, common, shared experience.  
Singing widens our circles of connection - at choirs, people find long-lost friends, forge lifelong friendships and even marriages!  

3. It's a Magical Way to Change the World  
"I was long an activist before I became an artist.'” - Harry Belafonte  
 The late great Harry Belafonte, survived an abusive childhood to become a globally renowned activist-artist who campaigned alongside MLK in the Civil Rights Movement. He used his magical voice to break through barriers and contribute to many humanitarian causes including pioneering the massive charity single, We Are the World.    
We don't have to be a global celebrity to change the world - we can start in our corner by using our voices to befriend a dragon, stand up to a bully, share a kind word with a stranger or sprinkle a little loving magic  
in the ears of our beloveds.   

Abracadabra! What will you do next with your magical voice?
Out & About - I went to see the incredibly powerful opera   
Blue at the ENO with Esther Austin, Editor Extraordinaire of Turning Point Magazine (Summer Edition out soon!)

Wishing you a Magical May!  
Look forward to seeing and singing with soon!  

Be well, breathe deep and keep singing loudly!
