This is late notice, but hey, it’s good to know at any time that elders can learn to do hip-hop…and I will do a cameo solo in Deborah Henson-Conant’s song about the library, in honor of our return to the newly renovated branch library where we have met since we started in 2013. Lots of good fun, and short, too!
Sing and play the sublime arias of JS Bach in this 15 week class at New England Conservatory’s School of Continuing Education. Explore, rehearse, perform and delve into the beautiful intricacies of Mr. Bach’s chamber music for voice and obbligato instruments (flute, oboe, strings, etc). NEC –(scroll down voice page to Bach class)

Our Platinum Singers are going uptown! Or is it downtown? Our journey is to Copley Square sing a free program at the Boston Public Library (newly renovated). Read all about it below…fun music, as always, Beatles, folk tunes, sing alongs, and Ned Rorem…

Platinum Singers begin the same day, at the Harriet Tubman House. A singing class for anyone who qualifies for the AARP, and a fun group to boot. Virtually free, and you can attend a dynamite exercise class just beforehand. USES Senior services
If you want to join the JP Jubilee singing group, the wait is until February 19, 2016. Contact me for further info about this group that meets on Friday mornings, and, like the Platinum Singers, is a class and a performing group. We meet at Curtis Hall in Jamaica Plain.
BUT wait, there’s more! Private lessons with me, of course, in JP and Cambridge, AND our monthly Circle Singing group meets Sunday January 10 at St. Mary’s Church in Central Square, Cambridge. Please contact Peter McLoughlin if you’d like more info. Runs 4:30-6:30pm, fun group improvisational singing à la Bobby McFerrin.
Come hear the Platinum Singers sing a few beautiful tunes, including Wachet Auf (with guest violinist Matt Hoener and his brother Drew on keyboard) at the USES Holiday Fair. Wednesday December 9, we sing at 2:30 and you can buy trinkets before that. Harriet Tubman House, 566 Columbus at Mass Ave, Boston’s South End. Always free.
Our concerts are fun, short and full of variety. Come enjoy this delightful group of neighbors. I conduct this creative (and wacky) group. Actually, I think I’m the wacky one, but they definitely follow me.
