Central Marin Singers Choir!
* Wednesday, June 7, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Some of you were there when we welcomed Shireen Amini as Guest Songleader at our West Marin Singers group last year, that was so much fun! This year, we’re fortunate that Shireen is making another rare visit to the area, this time as Guest Songleader at our Central Marin Singers Choir on Wednesday, June 7, 7:00-8:30pm in San Anselmo.

I love singing with Shireen so much! She writes and carries such beautiful, life-affirming songs, and her spirit, talent, and utter wonderfulness are just off the charts! Here’s more on Shireen:

Shireen (non-binary using she/her in English, elle in Spanish) is a queer, Puerto Rican-Iranian American, Earth-loving singer-songwriter, percussionist, and song leader based on unceded indigenous territory known as Portland, Oregon. Shireen believes strongly in music’s power to propel cultural revolution and carries a deep commitment to her own liberation path as well as her vision of a more just world.

As a song leader, she holds transformational space, leading infectious and soulful community songs, often engaging her participants in rhythm. She has toured all along the West Coast leading song circles and a number of her original community songs have rippled out wide into the networks like I Am Free in My Body, The Sun Song, and Gather Your Resilience. Shireen also teaches drumming, leads workshops, and facilitates grief ritual as part of her community-based music empowerment project Shireen Amini Music Medicine.

Central Marin Singers is a drop-in choir, so if you’re within reach of San Anselmo on any Wednesday night, I hope you consider joining us! If you haven’t already, you can get tix for this Wednesday and any future Wednesday (note: no session 5/30), including Shireen’s visit, by clicking here.

Led by Marv Zauderer, who teaches easy-to-learn songs in the oral tradition — call-and-response, no need to read music! — this community song circle gives you the opportunity to see (via Zoom) and hear (via free software – Jamulus) everyone in the circle, and gives everyone the opportunity to see and hear you, too — live, without any delay! Feel the joy of singing with others again! It’s the kind of thing that so many of us have missed since the pandemic derailed community singing, right?
