The Music As Medicine Community Sing is an evening of song & sanctuary hosted by artist-activist Lydia Violet & Keys to Life

About this event

For many millennia, music, and specifically music made together in community, has been a crucial way we bolster ourselves in hard times. Music can mend our bones and pour in the grace. It can transform our exhaustion and help us feel more held as a part of the choir. Keys to Life is excited to host Bay-Area artist-facilitator Lydia Violet Harutoonian for her beloved Music As Medicine Community Sing!

Lydia brings with her the gift of facilitating gatherings into song and collaboration. Singing in a council of friends is one of the most healthful, encouraging, invigorating, and nourishing things that we know, though many of us have been discouraged away from this life-giving opportunity. Just as it feels good to act in the companionship of others on behalf of life, so too is the homecoming of singing together. We will use the spiral of Joanna Macy's work to guide our path for the evening, with Lydia bringing in concise teachings from Macy's 50 years of being present to community in hard times.

All are welcome! No music experience necessary.

Friday, August 19th : 6:30-8:30pm

Covid Protocol: Covid is an ever-changing landscape, and we are doing our best to use the information and resources available to make good decisions. This event will be held outdoors, and we would like all participants with access to a rapid test to please test the day before or morning of our event, and if anyone doesn't have access to a rapid test, please email us at, and you will be able to come 20 minutes early and use one of our tests on-site. Right now face masks are optional, but these protocols are open to being modified as we tend to both our need to gather and see each other, and protect against Covid-19.
