Circle at the Artists' Guild:
In addition to the concert series, there's a monthly song circle at the Artists' Guild. Held in the same room as the concerts, it's free and open to everyone. We take turns around the circle singing songs, and maybe singing or playing along if we know the song. We sing folk songs, pop songs, and hymns, and sometimes we have an improvised music jam. The only rule is that it's all acoustic, with no amplifiers or microphones. Everyone is welcome to take a turn in the circle, or just to listen. Feel free to bring a quiet activity such as sketching or reading.
Click here for a video description of the song circle.
Click here for a short music clip from a more recent song circle.
The song circle is held on the third Sunday of each month, starting at 7:00 (new starting time, beginning last month) and going till at least 9:00. Come for all or any part of that time. The next song circle will be on Sunday, April 15, 2018. The IRS has changed the deadline for filing tax returns to April 17 this year so it won't conflict with the song circle.
To receive e-mail notices of the song circle a few days ahead of time, send an e-mail to OCAGconcerts@gmail.com with Song Circle in the subject box. Note: AOL and Optimum Online won't accept mail from OCAGconcerts, so don't use an aol.com or optonline.net address.
