Eight Friends Singing in the new year on top of Wayah Bald in the Great Smoky Mountains 


Singing In Beautiful, Resonant Places is Magical

The interior of this tower rings like a bell.



What people say about our Song Gatherings:

“I love singing with you . Your presence is such a gift to us all. I love the know-ledge and energy you impart everytime we gather.  I'm sure sometimes it's like hearding cats with all of our different personalities, however, you deal with each of us, and then all of us, collectively with such love and respect. “  Sheryl R.

“Tom, You bring such a wonderful spirit of joy - and knowledge and leadership - to all our sessions. I came to Ubuntu Singing because a friend suggested it after the death of my beloved husband. I've found that being in Ubuntu gives me times of great joy amid the grief. I am grateful to the group and especially to you.”  Sarah H.


I am grateful for the harmonies, the rhythms, the lyrics in many languages, the dancing, the sharing of joys and pains, the laughter, and most of

all for the music, which rolls everything together and binds it with a red silk

ribbon.   L. F. L.
