Adoptee Forum - Sound Play: How Music Moves Us 1/25

In this 70 minutes online sound play, we will experience music through a series of games. We will investigate sound and emotion, dramatize movement, play with rhythm and vocalization, and reflect on the music that surrounds us. We will build self-awareness and understanding of how music helps us process our feelings, emotions and personal identity. No prior musical experience or knowledge is required.

Who: Adoptees only
When: Monday, January 25, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm ET
Where: Online on Zoom. 
*** Advanced registration required at

Some examples of what's included in the online workshop:
* Listening activities: linking individual sounds and music excerpts to our emotions
* Sound and movement exercise—dramatizing physical responses to sound
* Conductor + Orchestra activity—all participants engage in sound game to experience pattern shifts that occur in all music
* Discussions based around each activity to explore parts of the music process
