About

SING YOUR HEART OUT!

Our ancestors often gathered in a circle around hearth or fire to sing songs and celebrate community. That’s what SongSquad does!
  • To share our untameable joy
  • To lighten our unnameable pain
  • To build intentional community through the power of group singing

This is the medicine that SongSquad offers for the times we live in.

Our motto is: Paperless singing in a perfection-free zone! A fun and judgement-free environment awaits you. There are no auditions, all songs are taught by ear, and no singing experience or music reading ability is needed. All ages, faiths, and identities are welcome to join us and experience the true meaning of harmony. Come and be part of the songs, laughter, and joy!

SongSquad is part of the Ubuntu Choir Network.
