The Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church and Folk Life Studio are co-sponsoring two music classes.Sing through the Seasons is focused on seasonal folk and traditional songs, games, chants and rhymes.
Families Together, a mixed age class for children from birth to five years, provides an opportunity to explore rhythm and rhyme, melody and chants, songs and games in a friendly social atmosphere with other adults and young children. The class will meet on Friday mornings from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM for six weeks, October 14 through November 18.
Youth Folk Chorus participants will learn songs and singing games while building age appropriate skills in music, movement, and ensemble work. The final class will be a sharing performance for family and friends. The chorus will meet on Tuesday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:30 for six weeks, October 11 through November 15. Folk Chorus participants may opt to perform in “A Harvest of Stories and Songs” a concert scheduled for Saturday, November 19 as part of the Middle Street Harvest Festival.
