Are you 18 - 39 and fun to sing with? (If not, your member request will be declined)

I know several puppets who can attest to my excellent credentials.

Tell us about your interests in community singing.

I grew up with community singing. It is in my blood and I want to see all of Austin reclaim this truly great American tradition.

Tell us about any training and experience you have in music, theater or improvisation.

While living in Nashville I was the lead singer and writer in an art rock band. I'm especially interested in experimental theater and performance art that incorporates music and video. A life goal is to produce an original rock musical for people who don't like musicals. Ummm... and I love puppets.

On a scale of 1-5, where 5 is the best, how good are you at sight reading? (I use this to pick the difficulty of the music for each practice.

Skip (space preserved for historical reasons)

umm, like I started this group. But I am always looking for more people who share this love of singing old hymns. There are many out there. Finding the ones who can can be available two Sunday nights a month, that's a challenge.

Introduction

I grew up in Austin but left after attending theater school at UT. The culture in Austin is very supportive of independent artists like me, and that's why I moved back here. I'm single so I often hang out with creative types who are younger than me.

What Matson is saying about this Meetup Group

It's the dream experience for many. It meets our desire for making joy, community and music in a very primal way. I hope the dreamers find out about FCS and pack the room with 60+ because they are out there.
