Many recall singing along to various tunes while sitting outside by a campfire. But what about a singing along with an orchestra?
Dr. Esther Morgan-Ellis plans to create such an event Tuesday at the University of North Georgia Dahlonega campus. Dr. M-E’s Sing-Along will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 20 in the Shott Auditorium at 82 College Circle in Dahlonega.
This kind of community event is nothing new. One hundred years ago, community members gathered at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore to sing old favorites to orchestral accompaniment.
Song books will be provided at the door. Unfamiliar selections will be demonstrated.
A participatory presentation will feature the UNG Orchestra and student vocalists.
The free event is part of Dr. Morgan-Ellis’s work as a 2015 Presidential Summer Scholar.
