February is Black History Month and February 14 is Valentine's Day, so bring or request your favorite love songs and songs about Black history. We'll go around the virtual room as many times as we can, giving everyone a chance to request a song (or just pass) during each round.
If you wish to request particular songs, it's helpful if you let us know in advance using the registration form linked above.
Wendy Lanxner will lead songs with guitar accompaniment until 2 p.m., after which any participant may lead any song, a cappella or self-accompanied.
If this will be your first use of Zoom, go to https://zoom.us, click on " Sign Up, It's Free " and follow the prompts (entering your email address when asked for "your work email"). Do this ahead of time so that you'll be all set to "join the meeting" when it's time to do so. Information about getting started with Zoom is at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697.
If you installed Zoom on your computer before February 8, go to https://zoom.us/download to download and install Version 5.5.2 before you want to join any Zoom session. (This version has bug fixes for Versions 5.5.0 and 5.5.1, released February 1 and 3.) For a smartphone or tablet, update the Zoom app from your App Store or equivalent source.
Join us on February 17 via Zoom. Especially if you're just getting started with Zoom, please try to join the Zoom session 5 or 10 minutes before 1 p.m. so that we can help with any technical issues before the session begins.
