Play with vocal harmonies, rhythms and expression - easy to follow along, and opportunities to lead and improvise (for those who want to.) CircleSinging emphasizes being in the moment and opening to the creation of unexpected musical journeys. One person in the center of the circle makes up and teaches simple vocal parts to small sections on the outside of the circle, which combine to form an organic and dynamic whole. People can then improvise on top of the "groove." You can follow along, or volunteer to take a turn leading. We also do some simple vocal improv exercises. Our voices and our bodies are the only instruments! No experience necessary. You can read more and see videos of CircleSinging at our Meetup website  (scroll down under "What we're about" to see videos.)

This event happens one Saturday per month in Arlington and one Sunday per month in Cambridge.

[more+]

Life, passion, redemption, and community-- all are invited to sing these themes woven together in harmony at the upcoming Family Folk Chorale concert “A Reason to Believe”. The event will be an all-ages rousing concert of the music of Bruce Springsteen, including a medley of favorites such as “Glory Days”, “Born in the USA”, “Hungry Heart”, “Streets of Philadelphia”, and many more.

Join us to celebrate the rich, decades-long stream of songs honoring our yearnings, authenticity, and struggles. The program, curated by artistic director Chris Eastburn from the 18-album canon of “The Poet Laureate of Rock 'n Roll,” also includes “The Rising”, “Land of Hope and Dreams,” and “We Take Care of Our Own,” uplifting gems from Springsteen’s later, more humanistic songwriting. These songs mark The Boss as one of the most successful songwriters of all time, yet, surprisingly, offer a refreshing antidote to commercial culture.

Family Folk Chorale is the Boston area’s premier intergenerational chorus, led by award-winning Artistic Director Chris Eastburn and backed by some of Boston’s most versatile musicians, including Gary Backstrom​ on guitars; Jonah Backstrom on drums; Paul Hatem on guitar; and Quinn Eastburn on fiddle and keyboard.

Family Folk Chorale concerts  are described by audience members as a musical "experience” or “happening” that hails to a time when live music was part of the daily fabric of home and community.

These concerts are perfect for people of all ages – we provide lyrics, opportunities to sing and dance along, refreshments, and a front seating area for young children.

The historic Arlington Town Hall is easily accessible by MBTA bus #77 from Harvard Square, or you’ll find plenty of free, on-street and public parking on Sundays.

Walk to dinner after the concert at one of Arlington Center's numerous delicious eateries and cafes.

To be notified of upcoming concerts, join our​ m​ailing list​, or like us on​ ​Facebook.​

Play with vocal harmonies, rhythms and expression - easy to follow along, and opportunities to lead and improvise (for those who want to.) CircleSinging emphasizes being in the moment and opening to the creation of unexpected musical journeys. One person in the center of the circle makes up and teaches simple vocal parts to small sections on the outside of the circle, which combine to form an organic and dynamic whole. People can then improvise on top of the "groove." You can follow along, or volunteer to take a turn leading. We also do some simple vocal improv exercises. Our voices and our bodies are the only instruments! No experience necessary. You can read more and see videos of CircleSinging at our Meetup website  (scroll down under "What we're about" to see videos.)

This event happens one Saturday per month in Arlington and one Sunday per month in Cambridge.

A Reason to Believe: The Music of Bruce Springsteen

Presented by Family Folk Chorale at Arlington Town Hall, Arlington

[more+]

Life, passion, redemption, and community-- all are invited to sing these themes woven together in harmony at the upcoming Family Folk Chorale concert “A Reason to Believe”. The event will be an all-ages rousing concert of the music of Bruce Springsteen, including a medley of favorites such as “Glory Days”, “Born in the USA”, “Hungry Heart”, “Streets of Philadelphia”, and many more.

Join us to celebrate the rich, decades-long stream of songs honoring our yearnings, authenticity, and struggles. The program, curated by artistic director Chris Eastburn from the 18-album canon of “The Poet Laureate of Rock 'n Roll,” also includes “The Rising”, “Land of Hope and Dreams,” and “We Take Care of Our Own,” uplifting gems from Springsteen’s later, more humanistic songwriting. These songs mark The Boss as one of the most successful songwriters of all time, yet, surprisingly, offer a refreshing antidote to commercial culture.

Family Folk Chorale is the Boston area’s premier intergenerational chorus, led by award-winning Artistic Director Chris Eastburn and backed by some of Boston’s most versatile musicians, including Gary Backstrom​ on guitars; Jonah Backstrom on drums; Paul Hatem on guitar; and Quinn Eastburn on fiddle and keyboard.

Family Folk Chorale concerts  are described by audience members as a musical "experience” or “happening” that hails to a time when live music was part of the daily fabric of home and community.

These concerts are perfect for people of all ages – we provide lyrics, opportunities to sing and dance along, refreshments, and a front seating area for young children.

The historic Arlington Town Hall is easily accessible by MBTA bus #77 from Harvard Square, or you’ll find plenty of free, on-street and public parking on Sundays.

Walk to dinner after the concert at one of Arlington Center's numerous delicious eateries and cafes.

To be notified of upcoming concerts, join our​ m​ailing list​, or like us on​ ​Facebook.​

Navigating the art world as a marginalized person can be frustrating, but it is possible! Join artist Catherine Graffam as she talks about finding her life-saving creative path as a trans woman and her advice on how to kick the art world door in and make space for yourself once you're there. Graffam has recently been profiled in The Jealous Curator's new book A Big Important Art Book (Now With Women) for her emotive and personal artwork. Author Danielle Krysa acknowledges the value of Graffam’s extremely intimate and honest portrayal of her journey as a trans woman: "I have always seen Catherine Graffam's work as very brave."

Graffam has exhibited at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Clark University, the University of Rhode Island, the University of New Hampshire, and many others. She has spoken at the University of North Florida, the University of Virginia, and currently teaches at Lasell College.
