Is there a better way to welcome a stranger than with song?

Open Circle was a project involving an established community choir, The Tuesday Night Fun Club and a group of strangers seeking connection through circle singing, a community singing and sounding practice which is spontaneous and evolving.

They worked together to co-create an evening of song, spoken word, music and video. Many people joined them in their quest to find connection through voice and music, a celebration of togetherness and their love of Cornwall.

They shared their work at two amazing, emblematic venues: Carnglaze Caverns & St Just Miner’s Chapel.
