BRING YOUR VALENTINE TO
“SING! SING! SING! – WE WISH YOU LOVE”
WHEN THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK SING-IN
CELEBRATES THE MANY FACETS OF ROMANCE
Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. at The Triad in New York City
Bring your favorite Valentine to SING! SING! SING! – We Wish You Love, an evening of wonderful love songs – beautiful, sunny, strange and hilarious – when the popular “American Songbook Sing-In” gathers on Tuesday, February 8 at 7 p.m. at The Triad, 158 West 72nd Street in New York City.*
Participants will get “in voice” in preparation for Valentine’s Day the following Monday.
Co-hosts are singer/pianist Anne Phillips, who plays the songs in keys that both men and women can sing, and Michael Shepley, who provides informal, amusing and interesting background to the songs themselves. Lyrics are provided and the sing-in begins!
With We Wish You Love, the hosts have selected a range 20 songs that deserve to be remembered and sung together, particularly in the week before Valentine’s Day. Included are standards like My Foolish Heart, My Funny Valentine, I Only Have Eyes For You, I Wish You Love, The Nearness of You, and You Made Me Love You; Broadway love songs like If Ever I Would Leave You, Tonight, On The Street Where You Live, Just In Time and Not While I’m Around; comedy tunes like Cole Porter’s hilarious Cherry Pies Ought To Be You, Get Me To The Church On Time, and Makin’ Whoopee; and even that undying Sixties hit, Love Potion #9 – plus many others.
* SING! SING! SING! admission is a $10 cover plus 2-drink minimum (cash only, please). For information and reservations, call 212-786-9064.
