The first rehearsal of (what is currently called) the Manna Singers was incredible. About 30 members from the MANNA community came together on Tuesday, September 12th for a light lunch and and an hour of singing. We warmed up with some simple exercises to connect ourselves with the breath – yawning and sighs, as well as a bit of experimenting with different vowel shapes. Our first song was “Amazing Grace” which was especially beautiful when hummed by the group. Our second song was “Let it Be” by the Beatles and here’s when something extraordinary occurred – we sang together in two-part harmony! Take a listen:
Everyone in the room was blown away with what beauty we were capable of achieving together in such a short time. We are so looking forward to the growth and unfolding of this special group.
