What music are we singing? The overall theme is "Made in Washington" with composers/performers/songs from and about Washington. We will explore some of the well-known songs like -
Bing Crosby (Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral, Shine On Harvest Moon)
Ray Charles (Georgia On My Mind, It Had to be You)
The Brothers Four (Try To Remember, Greenfields, Yellow Bird)
Songs about mountains (Ain't No Mountain High Enough, Go Rest High on that Mountain)
Sing Along (Hokey Pokey, Roll On Columbia)
Washington songs (The Old Settler, The Gooey Duck Song, Washington My Home)
We're still getting the music organized and we'll sight read it before we make final decisions, but along with some new tunes, there'll be lots of familiar songs.
Join us on the 18th and bring any friends, neighbors, etc. This is a non-auditioned choir and open to the anyone in the community. We'd love to see you all soon!
