About the event

The Golden Bridge Community Choir is a non-auditioned inter-generational choir and a member of the Ubuntu Choirs Network. We join in the ancient tradition of community building through song as we explore rhythms, harmonies, chants, and songs from around the world.

Ubuntu choirs seek to create a world in which we listen deeply to those around us, celebrate diversity, trust in our voices and bring them forward on behalf of harmony, justice, and peace.

We sing songs from around the world, taught in the oral tradition. Through singing these songs, we tap into the wisdom of other cultures. In turn, we are moved to give back to those cultures whose songs inspire and nourish us.

We have 2 choir sessions each year September - December and January - May. 

The first two weeks of each session are open to all newcomers - no previous experience required.

 

Newcomers and beginners are welcome! No sight-reading is necessary.

Intro Session: $15 per Intro Session

****First 2 weeks are open to newcomers, January 5th & 12th. If you decide to join after the first or second week, you can then pay the remaining balance for the season.

Full Season Pass: $240

16 Sunday rehearsals culminating in a concert December 8th. 

Children under the age of 16 of paid choir attendees may attend free.

TESTIMONIALS

"We are constantly in awe of your abilities to get everyone harmonizing so quickly. You are a miracle."

Gurmuhk Khalsa – Founder of Golden Bridge Yoga

 

"Maggie Wheeler and Emile Hassan Dyer have taught workshops and led choral singing at Omega Institute for many years. Their work is nothing short of miraculous. They can take a group of people at all levels of singing ability and through the force of their infectious enthusiasm, turn them into a harmonious choir. I don't know who benefits the most--those of us who get to listen, or those in the choir who experience the creative joy of making music together."

Elizabeth Lesser- Founder Omega Institue

 

"Maggie Wheeler and Emile Hassan Dyer create a remarkable musical space. Their optimism, skill, and gentle humanity invite their students to fully participate in musical creation. Utilizing songs and music traditions from diverse world cultures, they weave singing, drumming, and storytelling into a powerful and incredible musical tapestry of peace, justice, and abiding joy. It is both delightful and profound. I was deeply moved by the experience."

Allyssa A. Boyer, Saint Paul's, UCC, Mechanicsburg, PA
