After a lovely evening singing together about songs (the crowd did a magical Moonlight Serenade and The Song is You, among others), SING! SING! SING! - The Great American Songbook Sing-In will feature songs about dancing on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. at The Triad.
There are, of course, the beautiful songs from the Astaire and Rogers musicals -- Let's Face the Music and Dance, Cheek to Cheek, Let Yourself Go among them -- but there are a lot more, including Let's Dance and even Charleston.
We were amazed and gratified to see so many of you for the August performance ... the end of summer is unpredictable, but we had our biggest house yet! Thank you for all of your kind words and offers to bring friends. Mark Wednesday, October 21 for a future sing-in.
See the blog below for all location and contact information.
An evening in which everyone participates by singing together (using lyric sheets provided), SING! SING! SING! is hosted by singer/pianist Anne Phillips and Songbook devotee Michael Shepley. Brief, informative, and often humorous background about each song, its creation, and its lyric references is shared – then everyone sings the song together.
In lifting the spirits, and reconnecting the heart to songs from the past, SING! SING! SING! becomes, said one past participant, like “song church.”
See you in September!
- Anne and Michael
