Free Range Singers welcome new voices

From page A7 | September 11, 2013 |

The Free Range Singers, an inclusive community choir directed by Laura Sandage, begins its fall session on Sept. 17. This group meets on Tuesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the sanctuary at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road.

All voices are welcome, including singing children when accompanied by a singing adult. The fall session will run 16 weeks, from Sept. 17 to Jan. 20, with no rehearsal the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, and extra rehearsals the final week.

The season’s culminating event will be “The Rhythm of Love,” a charitable fundraising concert on Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 20, which will include the UU Sparks Choir and other local singing groups.

The Free Range Singers are part of the Ubuntu Choirs Network, an international network of choirs whose participants believe that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, “and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining voices in song,” a news release said.

“Ubuntu choirs like the Free Range Singers are inclusive, non-auditioned, community-focused and socially engaged,” says director Sandage. “This year we are raising funds for the Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network, which coordinates volunteer services and advocacy for immigrants, migrant workers and their children in Yolo County.”

No singers are turned away for lack of funds, but the group is supported solely by singer contributions. A recommended donation is $125-$195 for the season or $30-$50 per month for four months. New singers are invited to try a September rehearsal for free.
