Schweinhaut Song Circle

  • 09 Jun 2023
  • 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
  • Schweinhaut Senior Center or Online via Zoom

The monthly Schweinhaut Song Circle provides a daytime opportunity to enjoy delightful songs, old or new, humorous or serious, timeless or topical. Free!

Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience. Come for informal group singing or just to listen, in person or via Zoom.

June 18 is Father’s Day and June 19 is Juneteenth, so bring or request your favorite liberation songs, songs about fathers, or any other songs!  We'll go around the room as many times as we can, giving everyone a chance to lead or request a song (or just pass) during each round. 

If you wish to request particular songs, it helps to keep the singing going if you let us know in advance using the registration form linked below.

Susan McNelis will lead songs with guitar accompaniment, and any participant may lead any song, a cappella or self-accompanied. 

The Song Circle will be held in person at the Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center, 1000 Forest Glen Road, Silver Spring, MD 20901.

The in-person session will be held under FSGW's COVID-19 Policy Tier 2 guidelines.

If you can't come in person, you can join us on Zoom with any Internet-connected device--computer, tablet, or smartphone--or you can join by dialing a phone number.

The Zoom link and phone number will be sent Friday morning to those who have attended the Schweinhaut Song Circle using Zoom and to others who register at https://forms.gle/jr4sR9tmu6VRMBdN8 by Thursday, June 8.   

If this will be your first use of Zoom, go to https://zoom.us, click on " Sign Up Free " and follow the prompts. Do this ahead of time so that you'll be all set to "join the meeting" when it's time to do so.
