UPCOMING SHOWS

THE AT HOME SINGALONG

In the spirit of close-and-local and my past Boxing Day Singalong Jams, I'm presenting the AT HOME SINGALONG right at my house!

I will be leading songs both from my custom songbooks and the Rise Again book-which includes my original tune, Right Here! Our comfy chairs and sofa, cozy rug and fireplace are the perfect place to sit back, choose favourite tunes and sing together.

We will have tasty treats, teas, and coffee available, and if you wish, BYOB. My delightful mother-and-daughter housemates Magda and Nadia Zerebiec will welcome you and be your hosts.
