Sing, Sing, Sing Starts October 18th
Begun in 2010, sing! Sing! SING! (SSS) is Northwest Sound’s program of providing free a capella singing training for men of the community. Participants are given free group music lessons, sheet music and training media, participation in chorus rehearsals, and an opportunity to perform with the chorus in one of its annual holiday shows. In the program, participants learn a variety of singing techniques including basics of supportive breathing, word pronunciation, vocal production, ear training, voice-matching, and finding the message in a song, skills that are developed continually by all chorus members as they progress.
Of the many dozens of men who have joined the program over the last seven years, twenty enjoyed their SSS experience so much that they wanted more and auditioned to become members of the 80-man chorus. Others have gone on to join other local choruses with gained practical experience and greater confidence in their abilities.
Matt Herbst (pictured above), member of the 2015 class of SSS has said that the best part of the program was "definitely the welcoming and instructive atmosphere offered during and after attending Sing Sing Sing. It was clear how much everyone was helping each other and how many years of experience the whole chorus had for other members to learn from."
The upcoming session of the program, starts on Wednesday, October 18th at 6:30pm and continues for the next five Wednesdays, 7-8:30pm.
