An evening of song at the Annie

Last night we had our weekly Wednesday night singing session at the Annie. It’s very informal and spontaneous; anyone who wants to show up takes a seat in our circle of chairs in the art parlor, and we go around taking turns singing (and/or playing acoustic instruments).   The group will often join in the chorus if it is a well-known song.   It’s a very open atmosphere; music of pretty much any genre, and singers any level of talent or experience (from people who usually only sing in the shower, to music professionals), are welcome. People are also welcome to come if they just want to listen.

Here is a slideshow of some spontaneous photos I took last night.

    This is one of my favorite weekly relaxation activities! I am not in any of these photos, of course, because I was taking them…

    It looks like a lot of fun.

  3. Maybe next time you could make a video of a song? Many of these singers join in on the Tuesday night “Songs of the Sea(?)” at Cape Ann Brewery. Many wonderful songs, lost at sea.
