Sing-along to Support Local Music February 7


Sistema Kingston invites you to attend the Cantabile Choirs’ second annual sing-along. It’s called Sing, Sing a Song and it’s Sunday, Feb. 7 at 2 pm at Sydenham Street United Church.

Don’t be shy. You can’t hit a sour note at this local event. Join in the fun of singing favorite folk songs, campfire songs, Broadway show tunes–including The Sound of Music–and songs from the hit parade. You’ll even hear memorable tunes by the Beatles.

Mark Sirett and David Melhorn-Boe are accompanying the singing. In addition to the sing-along the Cantabile’s Men’s and Women’s Choruses will sing Jerome Kern’s beautiful They Didn’t Believe Me, Seasons of Love from the musical Rent, and Gordon Lightfoot’s classic Song for a Winter’s Night.

Admission to the sing-along is free

Admission for Sing, Sing a Song! is free.  Donations for Sistema Kingston’s teaching program and instrument fund are encouraged. They would be greatly appreciated. 

Sistema Kingston is an initiative of Queen’s Community Music in partnership with The Joe Chithalen Musical Instrument Lending Library and First Avenue Public School. It’s an after-school music program for underprivileged children.  It focuses on positive social change through the pursuit of musical excellence. Through free, group centered music instruction, Sistema Kingston emphasizes inclusivity and teamwork, builds personal persistence, and fosters creativity and personal responsibility. Using the Venezuelan El Sistema as its model, Sistema Kingston hopes to bring about social change that inspires children to reach their full potential as individuals, musicians and citizens.  Sistema Kingston opened in October 2015 with 20 children aged 7 to 9.
