SEATTLE LABOR CHORUS SINGALONG - 7:00-9:30 pm7500 Greenwood Avenue
Seattle Washington 98103
It’s time again for the annual Seattle Labor Chorus Singalong—Saturday evening March 12th, 7:00-9:30 p.m.
It gets bigger and better every year because of: spirited community singing with words provided, a silent auction, a song or two by the Chorus, great homemade snacks and family-friendly atmosphere. The event will take place at the same location as last year, the Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church. There is street-parking (though not in the handicapped parking near the church’s back door), or else travel by the #5 bus.
The Singalong features great songs of labor, peace, and justice as well as some golden oldies. You are welcome to lead a song as an individual or a group, or to sit back and join in the singing, or, just listen. The food will include savories, sweets, and non-alcoholic drinks. And—you can buy tickets for the Chorus’ famous annual quilt raffle, or buy the new Chorus CD, Gonna Rise Again, as well as the two previous ones. For bidding in the silent auction, bring your checkbook or cash. Another feature: you are welcome to bring flyers for our community table, available to the 200 people who typically attend. Admission is by a suggested donation of $15 per adult or $5 for children, but no one will be turned away. Tickets are available from SLC members or at the door.
The Singalong is the Chorus’ biggest fundraiser of the year. It is one of the means that allows the Chorus to sing for free in support of working people at strikes, rallies, protests, and union halls; at annual meetings, at benefits for good causes, for book signings, at memorials; and at the Northwest Folklife Festival. The SLC is a non-audition chorus of about 40 singers from all walks of life. The SLC website and its Facebook page have more information about the Chorus or this event. Or contact Janet Stecher at (206) 524-7753 or at email@example.com.
If you would like to lead a particular song this year, please send the lyrics to Janet at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can include them in the song data base that can be projected on the wall so all to sing along. Deadline Feb 26. 2016.
