From Ensemble Alioni:
Clayton Parr, musical director of Ensemble Alioni presents
A Megobrebi Georgian Singing Workshop!
You are invited to join Clayton Parr and members of Ensemble Alioni on Saturday, January 21, from 1pm – 3pm for an informal singing workshop & potluck event. Come and enjoy an afternoon of songs with Megobrebi (Friends) new and old. Beginners thru advanced singers are welcome (and will have a great time). No previous experience with Georgian music is necessary (but Clayton keeps things moving so experienced singers won’t be bored). Most songs will be taught entirely from scratch, and we might sing a few we already know. Song sheets will be provided. The ability to read sheet music can be helpful but is not necessary, often we learn by ear. The cost is: Free — but everyone is requested to bring some food or beverage to share. There is no further commitment — attend just this once or return again. What do we get out of it? We really love to sing Georgian songs!!
This time we will be gathering at a friend’s apartment in the West Loop, close to Adams and Racine — near bus lines and the CTA Blue line “el” if you don’t drive.
More info will be emailed next week.
Plan to join us Saturday, Jan 21st, 1pm – 3pm!
Forward this message to your singing friends!!
