"Watching people sing in a safe environment is like seeing stars explode." Rhiannon, Vocal River

Singing gatherings postponed...


Dear singing friends,


My heart goes out to everyone as we deal with the unfolding and unusual times we are facing together. In order to keep everyone as healthy as possible and to avoid the spread of the

COVID-19 virus,

All Open Sing Events are cancelled until further notice


in-person You Gotta Sing! Rehearsals & SING! Group Classes will be postponed

until things settle down.

Please stay tuned for new dates for our Open Sing Events and a plan for rehearsals moving forward.

This is an unusual time for all of us and I wish you all the best of health and encourage you to

do what feels right for you. 

I'm so sorry to miss singing with you all for the next while. Please stay tuned as I develop some Online Sing with Vanessa / Green Room options to support you singing and finding joy and comfort in song in these challenging times.

With care & love,

"Vanessa is a wonderful leader in group singing. An hour and 15 minutes of embodying song and playing with harmony is pure fun and joy and very therapeutic." 

~Nancy Wells 

"I truly look forward to every Thursday singing circle. I love the chance to sing for fun, pleasure, and because I want to. Vanessa brings a no-pressure, enthusiastic style and encouragement to try new things as we learn new pieces and revisit past favourites. The attendees are welcoming and fun to sing with too...well, I could go on and on!"

~Ralph Urquhart

Singing sessions with Vanessa are pure joy! This has to be the only place I can think of where I feel completely comfortable singing. There is no judgement, no pressure, no stress; simply encouragement, support and a wonderful community. The group changes week by week as people are able to attend but the result is always the same, a feeling of belonging and somehow we always manage to create an awesome sound. This is a tremendously affirming, positive experience, no matter what your level of musicianship or confidence.

~Jean (and Tony) Hillman
