Harmonic singing and chanting

I've gotten involved in an harmonic singing group in Ft. Collins and am finding the experience mystical. The vibratory force that we all operate on is not always apparent, but when making a sound that you suddenly realize and feel is on the same vibratory frequency, oscillating at numerous frequencies simultaneously, it's exhilarating.

Met Herman last night, who has a beautiful operatic bass voice and who also hosts a radio program about classical music. He has asked if the group wanted to perform on his program and we all agreed. I'll post the radio station call letters and numbers when I get them, but the date will be Saturday, July 11, from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Grace teaches the classses, and she just has the most terrific voice. Read more about her and her classes here.
