I've had a long rest from the world of blogging, sorry about that. Too busy singing. The photo is us singing at the First Unitarian Church for William Stafford's birthday on January 22.
The Flash Choir is starting our spring-summer 2010 season on March 8th. We are still working out the details of what we will be singing, but we will be incorporating some workshops of different kinds, as well as some other stuff that we don't know about yet. But rest assured, it will be fun. We are going to rehearse on Mondays, or maybe every other Monday. Again, check back here if you need more info about dates, or email me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org. We use a google group site to keep in touch, so we could add you to that if you'd like.
We have just gotten done with a bunch of performances of "Strangers Together", a 10-song cycle with music by me, Sarah Dougher, and words by William Stafford. We will continue to sing some of these songs around town and hopefully do another round of performances next January, but that's a while from now.
If you would like the choir to come to your institution or place of business to sing songs about nature and humanity, or something else, please contact us. We're looking for new and unusual places to sing. Bonus points for places with people under 10 or over 70. We are also interested in doing collaborations in unusual situations.
UPCOMING shows include:
March 5 at 8am at Sojourner School. It's Celebrate Reading week!
March 5 at 7:30 pm at Terwilliger Plaza, which is a retirement community. This will be the whole "Strangers Together" cycle, so it would be a good one to come to if you want to hear that.
March 17 at 9:30 for three minutes in front of the City Council to support public arts funding
If you'd like to join this free, community choir, just show up on March 8 at 7pm, at 728 SW First Ave. We'd love to meet you.
