Gentle yet engaging, this music is guaranteed to relax everybody from babies to CEOs. Old favorites from Brahms to Malvina Reynolds, new pieces by Candy Forest, Nancy Schimmel and Linda Hirschhorn are played on acoustic instruments (Candy at the piano and Emil Miland playing cello) and sung by family: Candy and her brother, Ben Mordush, with a cameo appearance by The Singing Rainbow Youth Ensemble.

The music is selected for its quieting quality and arranged to encourage deep relaxation of body, mind and spirit.



Occupella 

Occupella started with song circles at Bay Area Occupation sites and now leads singing at demonstrations, marches and BART stations for peace, justice, the environment and an end to corporate domination. We have singable parodies and updates of familiar songs on our website, occupella.org. You may download and use them at no charge. Besides our general collection, we have a No Fossil Fuel songbook and a new Black Lives Matter songbook to download. We also have a calendar and contact information.

Music has the power to build spirit, foster a sense of unity, convey messages and emotions, spread information, and bring joy to participants and audience alike.

Sister’s Choice is the name of the quilt square at the top of this page, the logo of Sisters’ Choice, a small company creating books and recordings of storytelling and songs for children and adults. Like other members of the Children’s Music Network, we “recognize children’s music as a powerful means of encouraging cooperation ... celebrating diversity ... building self-esteem ... promoting respect and responsibility for our environment ... and cultivating an understanding of nonviolence and social justice.”
