Community Choir – Starting Oct 19

Do you long for community? Do you long to create musical and social harmony? Well, community singing does that and more. Community singing is not meant for the “gifted” or the “talented”. It is there for everyone, regardless of musical ability or accomplishment, because the urge to sing is a fundamental impulse in every person to express the inexpressible! It’s about joy, laughter, shedding a tear or two because yes, that beautiful sound IS coming from everyone joining their voices together! It’s about letting go and letting out! It’s about getting a weekly sound bath and a musical massage! It doesn’t take as much energy as it gives! It’s about unexpected friendships and yes, harmony like we never thought harmony could be!

Community Singing is not limited to teachers, staff and parents or DMS. Anyone is welcome. Feel free to bring a friend or a teenager 16 and older.

We will be meeting 8 times during the fall to sing songs that everyone can learn quickly: songs about nature, about the season, the environment, about being human together! During the last two meetings we will sing holiday music so that we may go into the winter break with songs in our hearts.

The schedule:

We will meet in the Eurythmy room from 7 – 8:30 p.m. on the following 8 evenings:

Thursdays: October 19th and 26th
Tuesdays: November 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th & December 5th and 12th

Fee: a suggested sliding scale from $5-$10 per session. DMS teachers and staff $5. No one should be left out. If payment is not possible please come anyway.
