The Harbor Country Singers (HCS), will sponsor its third outdoor summer sing-along at the Three Oaks Arts & Education Center on Tuesday, September 8 at 6:30pm Eastern. Everyone is invited to join in. The sing-along was originally set for August 27, but bad weather that evening forced rescheduling.
This sing-along will feature folk songs by Pete Seeger; Woody Guthrie; Bob Dylan; Gordon Lightfoot; Joni Mitchell; Peter, Paul and Mary, and more. School of American Music’s Donna Mitchell and HCS Producer Pat Putnam will lead the singing, and Guitar Instructor Ron Spears will provide accompaniment. Other guitarists are invited to bring their instruments and play along.
Michigan COVID-19 rules allow outdoor gatherings of up to 100 people, provided social distancing is maintained. Sanitized seating from the Arts & Education Center will be available, or attendees can bring their own lawn chairs. Face shields will be available on request, and sheet music and lyrics will be provided, though the ability to read music is not required in order to participate in this event.
“Response to our sing-alongs has been excellent,” Putnam says. “People are eager to get out and participate in activities that are safe and fun. Many of those who attend have started bringing picnic dinners–a great way to enjoy the evening even more.”
The Harbor Country Singers is a program of the School of American Music, and is supported by a grant from the Pokagon Fund. The Arts & Education Center is located at 14 Maple Street in downtown Three Oaks, Mich. Rain date for the sing-along is Thursday, September 24, same time.
