How are we staying connected during the California "Stay at Home" order By having our incredible members share their talents! Angel City Chorale has so many members with incredibly diverse talents, and many of them are sharing them in virtual sessions for all of our members to enjoy.
The first chorale member to share her talents was Soprano, Jahna Perricone. Jahna and her husband, Michael, led Angel City Chorale members in a sound bath meditation last week. We asked her a few questions about sound bath meditation and her experience with Angel City Chorale. See what she said below:
Q: Why did you decide to join Angel City Chorale
A: I was thrilled to be invited into Angel City Chorale because I had been looking for a choir that was musically challenging, diverse and fun and that strived for excellence!
Q: What’s your favorite thing about Angel City Chorale
I really love how fun and open people are and the high level of musicality that's in the room! I also love the open inclusivity of the organization and how Sue brings everything together with the perfect touch of humor!
Q: How did you get started in sound bath meditations
I began exploring mindfulness and sound healing as a way to manage my own anxieties. I then studied to become a UCLA Certified Mindfulness Facilitator as my journey continued. Since I’ve always been in love with music, I was really drawn to the sounds of the Ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls. It just so happened that my husband, who is also a musician and Sound Engineer, began to explore these ancient instruments at the same time, and he too fell in love with them. We began to practice our meditations and music with the Ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls (which are all between 300-500 yrs old) together with other people and they really loved them! We’ve had many people tell us that their chronic pain went completely away during our sessions while others have said that they felt transformed.
Part 2 of this interview is coming soon. Stay tuned!
