First Side by Side Singing Date in 2018

You remember how librarians used to “shush” people if they so much as whispered in the library? Well, that rule will be set aside on Thursday, February 8 from 2 – 3pm as singers gather to sing “Side by Side” in the Kaplan Auditorium of the Hendersonville Public Library. The library is located at 301 North Washington St. in Hendersonville, NC.
Side by Side Singing is community singing for EVERYONE. We will do a few vocal warm-ups and then proceed to singing old favorites such as “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and “This Land is Your Land.” Music can be a wonderfully empowering component in healthy aging. But we like to sing because it is fun!
Song leaders Jan Mallindine and Ruthie Rosauer will accompany the group on piano and guitar. You need not be able to read music or be an experienced singer. Anyone who enjoys singing should come sing with us. The event is free and lyric sheets will be provided.

Side by Side Sings “Happy Trails” to Summer 2017

SxS leaders

Songleaders Debbie Nordeen (far left), Ruthie Rosauer (with clarinet) and Jan Mallindine led singers in their summer farewell session in Asheville on August 30. Ruthie broke out her clarinet for this session and added some zest (and a few squeaks) to “When the Saints Go Marching Home.”  We were also favored by a mother-daughter duet on “Amazing Grace” that was beautifully harmonized. Everyone loved “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” !!!!

Check this space for more sessions as they are announced.
