Big Sing London!
When: Sun, Oct 20, 2019, 3:00 PM
Where: Aeolian Hall, 795 Dundas Street
The Karen Schuessler Singers is excited to present Song Leader Bernie Gilmore to lead their Community Sing, Big Sing London!, on Sunday, October 20 at 3:00 pm at Aeolian Hall, 795 Dundas Street in London.
“Big Sing London! is an event where a couple hundred people get together to just sing. It’s not a concert—we do all the singing ourselves! With our need to come together and engage in community, what better activity could there be to do that than singing?” says KSS Artistic Director and Conductor Karen Schuessler.
The songs we’ll sing will be all kinds—traditional songs. Songs that unite us. Fun songs. Inspiring songs. Simple songs. Songs we can just sing out and not worry if we’re singing too loud—because we’ll all be singing loud! We’ll use word sheets so everyone can join in.
Bernie Gilmore is a well-known folksinger, singer-songwriter, guitarist and banjo player right here in London. Bernie is passionate about the power of community singing and the right of every person to be able to sing. He loves leading Community Sings! You can be sure he’ll get the whole room rocking!
As he says, “Get the heck off your favourite chair at home and out from in front of the big screen. If you love to sing great songs come on out to Big Sing London! for an afternoon you will thoroughly enjoy—and get ready to sing your socks off!”
“Sings are happening all across the county and beyond, and we’re excited to present our fourth one right here in our own city. Author and chorister Stacy Horn writes, ‘As long as I’m singing, it’s as of I’m inhabiting another reality. I become temporarily suspended in a world where everything that’s bad is bearable, and everything good feels possible.’ In my experience, when folks are singing, they feel better, they’re happier. It’s almost impossible to feel worse after a night of singing! The power of music is that it makes us feel alive,” says Schuessler.
