This is a terrific non-profit!! What a joy to sing with the Wings of Song chorus of SingersMarin! To be part of an organization that brings joy and lifts spirits of so many is emotionally fulfilling. To have the opportunity to lean to improve my vocal range, under the skilled direction of Jan Pedersen Schiff, is a tremendous benefit of singing with SingersMarin. My favorite seasons to sing with them are the annual Fall/Holiday session ~ I love holiday songs and the joy and bustle of that time of year; and, I am particularly fond of the annual Joyful Sound summer sessions ~ the contemporary music selection is always very fun and cool ~ when I saw the songs we will sing this summer ~ I said ~ Sign me up!! I am looking forward to the "Another Summer of Love" songs of: ★ Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In ★ Teach Your Children ★ Spinning Wheel ★ Lennon/McCartney Medley ★ Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da ★ Penny Lane ★ With A Little Help From My Friends ★ When I’m Sixty Four ★ Ripple ★ Big Yellow Taxi ★ You Are So Beautiful (Joe Cocker) ★ Proud Mary ★ You’ve Got A Friend ★ Up, Up and Away ★ Sounds of Simon and Garfunkel ★ The Sound of Silence ★ The 59th Street Bridge Song ★ Bridge Over Troubled Water ★ Blowin’in the Wind/America ★ From Sea to Shining Sea ★
From the wonderful experience of seeing the faces of the elderly light up with joy when we sing to them, to the honor to have been a part of singing with SingersMarin at Carnegie Hall in November 2011, I would highly recommend SingersMarin www.singersmarin.org to those that enjoy singing, music and a sense of community. This organization has a range of choral groups from the young kids (so cute to see them sing out) to teens and adults. Come join them and make music! In joyful song ~ Maureen Sweeney, Greenbrae, CA

My daughter joined Choral Singers of Marin in fourth grade because she loved singing. Choral Singers of Marin has not only developed her skills but also inspired her. Choral Singers of marin is a fantastic program that offers a variety of singing groups according to age and levels and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to sing. You will have so many opportunities to learn, share, and become inspired.

Watching my daughter's confidence blossom regarding her singing is precious. She started very tentatively when she joined the choral group - which is a wonderful way to start for someone self conscious. She is developing a knowledge base about music and a deep love of singing. Her skills are improving and it is such a joy to hear her practicing at home, in the car, in the shower... music has become a deep seeded part of her life. Singers Marin has inspired her and it is truly magical.
