An Inclusive Online Singing Group
The Virtual Songbirds is an online singing community which I started in 2020 with the onset of lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic. It started with just a few members, and now has grown to more than forty people.
Its mission is to create and nurture a compassionate, inclusive, altruistic community of singers who prioritize the emotional and social aspects of music-making, and it is based on my decades of experience of running “in-person” singing groups of many types.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone, anywhere who loves to sing, regardless of skill level or experience. We particularly welcome people with disabilities, those housebound for any reason, or simply anyone that wants to be part of our growing community of singers.
We sing a wide variety of songs from Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, folk, 1960s, as well as special healing songs. Much of the repertoire is familiar, and all of it is easy to learn and satisfying to sing. We provide easy-to-read texts and sheet music of all material, and there is a new song most weeks.
The Songbirds meets via Zoom on Tuesdays 7-8pm EST.
Suggested donation of $10/session (additional family members included free).
