The annual Sing for Your Life event in Oakland is one of my favorite events of the holidays. I happened upon 'circle singing' when I first returned to the Bay Area years ago, a form of a capella vocal improvisation polished to perfection by the likes of SoVoSo. I've gotten away from it of late, but was very happy to find I didn't miss this year's big celebration which takes place next Wednesday, December 30, 12 hours (if you like) of vocal alchemy.
