Brush off those vocal chords -- it's time to deck the WLC halls in song!
In preparation for the Waban Improvement Society's annual Tree Lighting festivities, the Newton Family Singers invite you and your families to come sing with us and learn some easy harmonies to classic holiday songs. We will be holding an open community rehearsal on Sunday, November 18th at 6pm, at the Waban Library Center led by Waban's own Julie Crosson and Amy Friedman. This event is free and open to all ages.
Showtime will be at the Waban Tree Lighting ceremony on Sunday, December 2nd at 5pm in Waban Square right in front of Starbucks. There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to sing some great holiday songs with family and community. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the Newton Family Singers was formed, the Waban Tree Lighting ceremony has been an integral part of our year. This time of year, and all the holidays that surround the Winter Solstice, tend to focus on gratitude and community.
It's in this spirit of the season that NFS sings out and gives a little something back to the Waban Library Center, our home and rehearsal space. Moreover, it's a chance for our friends and neighbors to sing with us -- familiar songs that most people know the words to -- and share in our love of singing together. (To learn some harmony parts before the tree lighting, come to our open rehearsal on Sunday November 18 at 6pm.)
Here's a video from the first tree lighting we sang at, in 2010:
And a slideshow of photographs from 2011, where it was reported that 300 people came out!
