A singing workshop with Briony Greenhill.

Collaborative vocal improvisation – singing freely and musically together – is a wilderness art form that calls us into deep connection with… everything. It’s a challenging, thrilling edge-walk for all who love and long to sing freely. The day will massage the quality of our listening, and gently help us express in full true voice, freely and musically, from the core of us.

Briony Greenhill is a British singer living in California. She teaches, records and performs improvisation internationally. She sings with The Elements quintet and co-founded the London Vocal Improv Collective and California’s Body Music Lab.
