About

SING YOUR HEART OUT!

Our ancestors often gathered in a circle around hearth or fire to sing songs, share food, and celebrate community. That’s what SongSquad does!

All ages, faiths, cultures, abilities, sexual orientations, and gender identities gather in a circle … to sing songs from around the corner and around the world … to share conversation and food with friends … and to experience the true meaning of harmony. We raise our voices together to share our untameable joy and our unnameable pain, connecting deeply to our truest selves, to each other, and to the more-than-human world.

Our motto is: Paperless singing in a perfection-free zone! A fun and judgement-free environment welcomes everyone. There are no auditions, all songs are taught by ear, and no singing experience or music reading ability is needed.
