Singers and non-singers alike will have a chance to raise their voices together Sunday, Feb. 8, as Homewood Public hosts a Family Sing-A-Long.
The program, led by associate librarian and band leader Kelly Campos, will feature nursery songs like "The Ants Go Marching" and "Found a Peanut," singable classics like "Rock Around the Clock," and well-known songs from yesteryear like "Minnie the Moocher" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," according to an HPL news release.
"Music gets in your bones and writes memories in your heart," Campos said. "You hear an old song, and you can remember where you first heard it, how old you were, and who was with you. That starts us to talking with each other, sharing stories, and really connecting."
Campos will draw on her extensive performance experience and a love for the music of childhood to connect multiple generations through fun music.
No singing experience is necessary to participate, she said. Lyrics will be available.
"Bring your vocal cords, leave your shyness at the door, and join the staff of Youth Services in a sing-a-long," Campos said.
The 45-minute program will start a 1:30 p.m. and is free and open to all ages.
The program will take place again March 8 and April 12 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. For more information, call (708) 798-0121 extension 222 or visit www.homewoodlibrary.org.
