Rhythm Revelations Weekend, with UU Musician Matt Meyer

Saturday and/or Sunday, February 3-4

A Joint presentation: Counterpoint Fund and Lifestream

Registration Required for each event – Child Friendly

Join us in Parish Hall for a weekend of rhythm and song with a focus on social justice, led by Matt Meyer, UU musician, community organizer and educator.

On Saturday, February 3, 2024, from 3:00-4:30 p.m., Matt will lead a workshop – “Rhythm and World Music Workshop” – which will explore the theories and practices of West African, South Indian and European perspectives on rhythm. Using song, body percussion, and a few instruments, we’ll look at odd time signatures, syncopation, and polyrhythms through the lens of what different world traditions have to teach us about the role of rhythm. Child Friendly. Please register at this link.

On Sunday, February 4th, Matt will help to lead music in our 10:30 a.m. Worship Service.

After the service, from 1:00-2:30p.m., he will lead a workshop entitled “Songleading for Justice,” a fully participatory workshop designed to build skills and confidence for leading music in worship or in the streets. He’ll share best practices for invitational leadership and gentle encouragement to singing. Join us for an experience of leading and following, rhythm and words, and the sound of a community in harmony together. Please register at this link.

Both Workshops are open to the congregation and the general public.
