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…
Thursday July 14, 2-3pm, Commonwealth Salon, Boston Public Library
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.
My student concerts are always free and always short. That’s how we keep the audiences coming. Oh, and audiences get to sing if they want, too.
The Platinum Singers are singing their OWN songs this week, plus our own parody of YMCA*, all in a 30 minute concert at 3:00 on Wednesday April 22 at the Harriet Tubman House, corner of Columbus and Mass Ave. Upstairs in the Lincoln Room.
*the letters of U-S-E-S (United South End Settlements, our sponsor and host for the wonderful senior programs).
JP Jubilee does their end-of-semester concert on Saturday May 9 at 12:30pm at the Jamaica Plain branch Library. Flyer below, by our members Lizi Brown and Estelle Disch:
Who says Seniors can’t kick …?
And on Wednesday, May 13 at 8:00pm, the Bach Arias Class at the New England Conservatory of Music is giving a class concert. Just a few delicious morsels; 3 lovely singers, a violin, harpsichord and the teacher may even sing a bit with the group at the end…short, sweet and free. Room 367 in the main building.
And, as always, I am accepting private students in Cambridge and Jamaica Plain, long or short-term…inquire within.
