(From our friend Michèle Voilleque in Berkeley)
Dear Singers and Friends,
I’m hosting a special post-election #MeetupAmerica gathering this Friday, December 2, at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, on Washington at Curtis, in Albany, Calif.
The idea behind #MeetupAmerica is, “No matter how you feel about the election outcome, we can all agree that democracy works best when we don’t just post online but come together face-to-face… Don’t underestimate the power of community.”
The Berkeley-Sing-in-Harmony Meetup Group has been meeting as a how-to class since 2010. Rather than teaching a workshop, though, this Friday we’ll have a Bring it Up and Sing it Out. Yes, I just invented that.
Come with a list of your fears, hopes and present joys. We’ll share our lists and sing, at the very least, “This Little Light of Mine.”
Children are absolutely welcome. We’ll start at 7 p.m. and end the structured part of the evening before 8 p.m. The sanctuary is ours until 8:30 p.m., and Solano Ave. is a block away.
Please let me know if you’re planning to attend by clicking here. It would be great to see you!
