Making music is the brain’s equivalent of a full body workout. Singing with others is a clear way to feel we are part of something bigger than ourselves. Singing is a kind of workout for your lungs and heart.
No, we won’t take your pulse rate after you’ve sung a song but we will check your happiness register!
Scientifically speaking, singing releases endorphins and dopamine. It reduces stress hormone cortisol and boosts immune antibodies. Heck, humanly speaking, it’s just plain fun!!!
Here’s the scoop: An afternoon of making joyful noises in Community Singing.
When: Saturday June 22, 2019, 12 Noon to 3PM (or later!)
Where: Habitat for Humanity Conference Room, 467 West St., Pittsboro
Cost: Suggested Donation $10.00 (at the door). No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
The Plan: Meet at 12 noon – and the singing starts! Around 12:30 we’ll stop, eat (bring your own “brown-bag” lunch) and introduce ourselves. Then we’ll sing till around 3 – or later. Some songs you’ll know; others we’ll learn as we go. Easy peasy!
We’ll learn from each other. Lead us in a song that you’d just love us to try (If I Had A Hammer, Oh Susanna, etc.). The best songs are those with a chorus that is easily learned.
Rounds – well, they require a bit more attention and may not be easily learned, but don’t discount them.
