I love to Sing-Just not in Public

Did you hear the report yesterday on ABC news that singing along with the radio can cause you to be a distracted driver.  I don’t know about you but I have been singing along to the radio for as long as I can remember.  Not always on key and sometimes forgetting the words, I sing along with gusto!

If you want to have the sing along experience and still be a safe driver, you can join Steve Nicholson, Kathy Chastain and James May (all members of the Sierra Master Choral) as they make up the “Then Again” band for a sing along of the music of the  50’s, 60’s and 70’s.  It’s at the Center for the Arts Friday night August 24th at 7:30pm. and it’s a fundraiser for Sierra Master Chorale’s Laura June Breen Vocal Competition.  You can support young singersand the Sierra Master Choral –  and have a great time doing it!
