Singing Songbirds Community Chorus
Singing Songbirds Winter 2017 Concert – Community Member Review
“Well you know I am a big fan already, but this was really different… The Songbirds were not performing or acting, they were just singing! That meant that we the audiences could also really relax! I was not worried if they were going to make a mistake (which they didn’t anyway). My colleague Julia said she was inspired too. The solos were lovely and add color and show the individual voices that make up the chorus. I thoroughly enjoyed being an audience member! Fingers crossed about being able to participate myself next semester!”

“My troubles melt away once I am in my spot among the sopranos. It is only an hour each week, but it is one of the most pleasurable and relaxing things I have done for myself in years. I have always wanted to try singing and this group is accepting of all levels of skill so it is perfect for me. I love how the different voices blend and I enjoy meeting the people that the voices come from. There is a terrific mix of songs that we get to work on and I am finding out what I can do with my voice. The leaders share their expertise with humor, compassion and dedication. The result is a community of spirit and engaging, joyful music.”
