Summer Songfest Practice

We're going to do a Summer Songfest for Seniors Citizens.

Each person can do a couple of songs as a solo, duet, trio, etc. or perform background vocals for each other. The songs should be from the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's or Broadway, jazz, crooning tunes, etc.; songs that the seniors would remember and enjoy hearing.

I would like for each person to sing 2 songs, but since the participants at each event could change, please be prepared to sing 4-5. Please email me with the name of the songs and artists, if known ASAP.

There will be 2 practices at my house and then the nursing home visits will be from mid-June to mid-July.

I want to make sure that everyone understands – WE ARE NOT PROFESSIONAL SINGERS!! If you make a mistake, it’s okay. These people just love having us; regardless of how we sounds. As long as you sing with enthusiasm and have fun with it, that is all I ask and all they want. I do not want to hear anyone complain about how the group did or how one person did, etc. SHOW SOME LOVE!! Okay???

    I'm actually going to this practice unless the weather is so bad that it's not safe to drive.

    I noticed on the calendar that you sent me on my email that it says songfest several times. When is the actual time and date for the songfest?

      The dates for the songfest have not been confirmed. Let's just start practicing and getting the "show" together so we will be prepared. Our first performance is scheduled for Sunday, June 23rd.

      Just come when you can. We usually get started a little late as people arrive.

    I won't be able to rehearse. :-( I am coming down with a summer cold, and my voice is shot. I don't anticipate it being better tomorrow. I am so sorry :-(

    I am potentially out of town on this date, but I should have gotten he information by bow, so I guess the trip won't happen. I'll keep you posted.

      This practice is an extra one in case we need it. So no problem!
