About

You're invited to come sing with us! We're accompanied by a piano player. We sing for fun and for others - sing alongs in senior living facilities several times a year. Usually between 15 and 20 attend and we sing about a dozen songs during each session. Most we sing one time through, although we may work on a section and then re-sing a song, as needed. You are not required to know how to read music, although you may find it would be helpful. Lyric sheets are provided for most of the songs. Other songs are from the book, "Get America Singing Again." The book has a small (singers - $5) and a large version (piano/vocal/guitar $17). Both are available at Windworks in Bellingham. https://bellinghamwindworks.com/ (Although you are welcome to share my copy until you decide that this is the right group for you.) The leader, Maggie, is delightful, and emails out a list of songs by the end of the prior week. No need to practice the songs before the session but it may be helpful to read through the lyrics if you are not familiar with a song. (and/or perhaps listen to a YouTube video) Everyone (age 50+), male and female, is welcome to join us at any time throughout the year. I started in January, this is the first time I've ever sung in an organized choir, and I'm having a great time! :-) We meet every Monday afternoon that the center is open. The senior living facility sing alongs are also on Monday afternoons. I suggest bringing along a water bottle. BSAC - Bellingham Senior Activity Center - Is for everyone age 50 and better. The singing activity is free, and you may attend as a guest to see if it is the right fit for you. If you want to continue, than center membership is required. The dues are $50/year, or $15/quarter, and there are financial hardship scholarships available. Center membership includes a parking sticker.
