Northampton Senior Center Group Sing with the A-E-I-O-UKES

The next Group Sing is Wednesday, September 7, 2016, 7:00pm at the Northampton Senior Center with the A-E-I-O-UKES. Northampton Group Sing

With The A-E-I-O-Ukes

The on-going Group Sing at the Senior Center, a monthly sing-along that has been going regularly for over 4 years, is free and open to the public. For singers and non-singers alike, the Group Sing is designed for the "over 50" crowd, but all ages are welcome. The Group Sing generally meets the first Wednesday of each month.

The A-E-I-O-Ukes is an ensemble of 18 ukulele players who get together a couple of times a month to sing and strum popular tunes, led by Downtown Sounds owner Joe Blumenthal. It’s 2 hours of singing, just for the enjoyment of singing with others. Lyric sheets for the songs sung that night are handed out at the beginning of the evening, and those who are on the Group Sing email list receive the lyrics in advance.

Why sing? As composer Brian Eno said on National Public Radio’s I BELIEVE program, “I believe that singing is the key to long life, a good figure, a stable temperament, increased intelligence, new friends, super self-confidence, heightened sexual attractiveness and a better sense of humor”. Singing transforms and uplifts spirits.

For more information or to be placed on the contact list, please call (413) 587-1228 or email . The Northampton Senior Center is located at 67 Conz Street in Northampton, Massachusetts. Group Sing is funded by the Northampton Senior Services and Arts Council.
