Singing Circles

Join us if you like to sing.  Contact Alan Moore with any questions. amoore@uuroanoke.org


The Roanoke Community Sing is a meeting in the UU fellowship hall this Sunday, August 19th. They sing every 3rd Sunday of the month and welcome everyone who feels called to sing, no matter their age or experience with singing. They use a round robin where each person has a chance to lead or request a song for the group to sing together or choose to pass. Instruments to accompany and support singing are welcome.
Come connect, express, and nourish through song. Bring an instrument, song to share, your voice, or just yourself. This event is free, but we encourage participants to contribute to a small donation for use of the UU space.

If you would like to stay tuned into Roanoke Community Sing’s monthly and impromptu events, please request to join their facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/173344573274337/
