Armory Pub Sing - 4th Tuesday
Based on a traditional English pub sing, but with a bit of an American flavor, this session meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month, and is open to all singers who want to join in. Pub singing emphasizes spontaneity, rich harmonies, and energetic joy. But, most of all, it emphasizes ***GROUP PARTICIPATION***! We're looking for songs that allow everyone to join in, rather than solo performances that reduce everyone but the leader to the role of passive observer. We love the fine old drinking songs and know plenty of sea chanteys and chorus songs from the British Isles and New England. But pretty much anything goes, as long as it encourages everyone to participate. Bring a song to share, or just join in on the choruses. Start time for the singing is 7 PM, but many arrive early to have dinner. We'll be in the café, where they have soup, sandwiches, and desserts, as well as wine, cider, and a nice variety of bottled beers.

We don't have to leave the café then, but we have to stop singing. **IMPORTANT NOTE**: This sing is not solely a Meetup group event, and takes place even if nobody from Meetup says they are attending.
