Description

An intergenerational family chorus made up of individuals, families, friends and neighbors, young and old, who come together weekly to sing a variety of songs from the American folk tradition. Our families come from various suburbs of Boston, including Newton, Needham, Watertown, Natick, Cambridge and Lincoln.

We share a common interest in creating a musically rich community where all members, adults and children, are nurtured and encouraged to sing, create, learn and perform as an integral part of daily life.

Anyone who loves to sing may join the Newton Family Singers. Reading music is not required, although it is helpful. We do not hold auditions, but welcome experienced singers and instrumentalists. Our members range from “shower singers” to experienced performers. We find that singers at every level can improve tremendously by singing, listening and singing some more.

Small children are welcome and often surprise us with what they have learned from just being at rehearsals with their parents! We provide babysitting for those times when children need a break.

For each session (Sept-December and January-April) we hold 10-12 rehearsals, and end the session with a public performance for friends, families and the community, as well as a performance at a local senior center. Generally, rehearsals are held on Sundays, from 4:15 to 6:30.
