Join the Community Sing at the Ann Arbor Senior Center, 1320 Baldwin Ave.
Just like singing around a campfire, you’ll find yourself remembering that old ballad, an Irish tune, or childhood family song in no time. We use both the Rise Up Singing Song Book and the Rise Again Song Books. Song leaders typically start out each sing and all participants get an opportunity to pick a song in the circle. First Tuesday of the month, 7-8:30 p.m., drop-in fee: $5.
