IN-PERSON: The Elderwise classroom at the Vineyard Church
Do you like to sing? This session is for you! We will harken back to the days when we used to gather around the piano, or go to a “hootenanny” where someone strummed a guitar and we sang old songs we knew and loved. For this gathering, we will provide lyric sheets and rhythm instruments, and you can bring your own ideas for songs to sing. Layla Ananda, performer and leader of numerous sing-alongs, will lead the singing and accompany us on guitar. From the 1890’s (“Bicycle Built for Two”) through the decades that followed, we will certainly sing some of your favorites. No experience is required – just an enjoyment of singing (which is known to be good for your health). Even if you usually only sing in your car or the shower, come on along – a good time is guaranteed. Layla Ananda has been singing all her life – with family and friends since she was a wee tot, and for audiences for the last 50 years. She has recorded three albums, is a member of Threshold Singers of Ann Arbor and Our Own Thing Chorale. Layla holds a B.A. degree in Contemporary Musicology from Michigan State University.
