Singing with The Elements is always a journey, and none of us knows where it will end up. I can’t tell you what kind of music we’ll make at the show (because I don’t know), but I can say that I love and trust everything we do together, and it’s gonna be good…
Come enjoy music, humor, vulnerability, funk, high energy, stillness, texture, story, harmony, and a whole lot of singing! Chances are the music will extend beyond the stage and into the crowd. Tickets $10-20 in advance, $15-25 at door. Doors open at 7:30pm, show 8pm. Near Downtown Berkeley BART.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Shay Nichols sings in a style all her own, and loves helping people experience the beauty and power of their voice. Her work blends the freedom of improvisation with the wisdom of sound healing traditions to encourage well being and transformation.
Green Huse has many miles of touring under her feet, and is now lovingly rooted in family life in Berkeley. She sings with all she’s got and improv is her mother tongue.
The British singer Briony Greenhill is freedom and acceptance given voice! She also founded the London Vocal Improv Collective and has studied with Bobby McFerrin & Rhiannon.
Sam Rogers (aka The One Mouth Band) has crisscrossed the globe as a solo a cappella act, TaKeTiNa Rhythm Facilitator, & CircleSong Leader. Formerly of SoVoSo and the theater/vocal group Improvox, he loves getting to sing with people of all levels, especially those who challenge him.
German-born Christopher Kuntzsch elegantly combines mastery with the child-like playfulness of the beginner’s mind. Raised by an opera singer and orchestra conductor, his recent vocal explorations have included circlesong play with Bobby McFerrin, the joys of tight barbershop harmonies, launching a looping-based a capella duo, and providing musical care for the dying. At its core, his music seeks to open the deeper realms of the heart.
Join these 5 dynamic vocalists for an evening of richly-textured a cappella singing. With their presence, freedom, tenderness, & respect, they will call forth music of the elements, and of the audience.
