Gathering Sparks Singalong Soiree

Singalong Soirée

Sunday Apr 24th, 7:30 pm
Tranzac Club

292 Brunswick Ave. (S. of Bloor)
 
It's time for another sing-along! One of the things we love to do is sing with other people. And that's why we started the Singalong Soirée -- so that we could have a whole evening of singing in a group. We'll be mixing our singable original songs mixed with classic folk, rock, country, and pop songs. And every single one will have a part for you to sing (unless you just want to listen, we're not fussy!). It's a really fun way to spend a Sunday evening, so come on down and join the fun!

Proceeds benefit Lake Ontario Waterkeeper.  $25 Advance/$30 Doors - Students $15 Advance/$20 Doors

Lake Ontario Waterkeepers
And while we are mentioning Lake Ontario Waterkeepers, they are a great organization active around issues related to our precious Lake Ontario watershed.  http://www.waterkeeper.ca

The Lucky Sisters
The Lucky Sisters are Tannis Slimmon, Rosemary Phelan, and Alison Lupton. What a combo! Three gorgeous voices, a pile of beautiful songs, and an amazing story of being brought together to record in support of Patio Records' Healing Gardens. Their debut CD will be available May 1, but you can find out more about them now at their website. http://www.theluckysisters.net
