Community Choral Celebration

THE MARKET STREET SINGERS invite you to another… 

Saturday, January 26, at 7:30pm
Ballard First Lutheran Church
NW 65th & 20th NW (across from Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ)

In the summer of 2011 The Market Street Singers presented a community sing-along event featuring favorite choral classics, familiar “chestnuts” which singers continue to love no matter how many times they sing them. This was such a huge success that we were requested to do this again at last year’s Folklife Festival. At the festival many people asked us to do it yet again, perhaps making it a regular thing. With such enthusiastic feedback we have decided to offer this as an ongoing annual event in late January.

We’ll provide the music, all you have to do is show up and enjoy the fun. Singers of all abilities are welcome, and non-singers are welcome to just show up and enjoy the music. A suggested donation of $10 will help cover the expense of this event.

There is no need to reserve a space, but if we run out of music scores, you may have to share with someone. But isn’t this a lovely way to make friends? There is nothing better than a large crowd of happy people singing music they love.
