The folks behind Gold Street Music concerts have come up with a new idea for summer, one that may appeal to those who like to sing but dislike singing in public. It’s a two-part singing workshop designed for all levels of vocalists -- or listeners -- with minimal performance pressure.
The first workshop will be held in the sanctuary of Resurrection Lutheran Church this Saturday, June 2 at 7 p.m. Bring your instrument. Or your voice. Or just your seat. In order to avoid chaos there will be an MC; otherwise it will be freestyle fun. Song sheets of familiar songs will be passed around; if you have a song you wish to have sung, write it down and lead the group.
The workshop offers locals a chance to sing, to be heard and to hear harmonies -- and provides an opportunity to hear an original song performed for the first time, or to hear a request sung by a favorite local performer.
Attendees can also just choose to sit and enjoy the music.
Admission is free and donations are accepted.
Part two of the singing workshop will be offered in September, when John Palmes will teach singers the mechanics of harmonies. If you have always wanted to know the how-to of creating harmonies, this is the time.
