We enjoyed singing at Willow Grove Retirement Community and the residents enjoyed it too.
Community Singers of Charlotte is a non-auditioned intergenerational folk chorus whose purpose is to promote peace through music. We welcome new members and visitors. We practice most Tuesdays at 2 PM and sing out in the community once a month. This blog has information for chorus members such as updates on practices, performances, links to music files and song sheets.

Looking forward to singing on Tuesday. I would like to record some of our songs to post on SoundCloud. This is one I want to record. If you don't know it yet, this video will teach you your part and you can sing along with the ensemble at the end. Click here for the pdf file. The friend who introduced me to this song calls it a "soul charge" and I definitely agree. The Zulu word Shosholoza mean "Go Forward" and the words literally are about a train moving fast on the mountain. While the song was originally a call and response sung by workers riding the train to the mines, it has become an unofficial national anthem in South Africa. To me it is about joy and strength and energy. Enjoy!

Vigil for Orlando tonight
I know many Community Singers will want to attend this service, so we will not have practice tonight.

Wonderful Friends That I've Known
This is a great Pete Seeger song that Dale has been teaching us.
