The other three Thursdays of the month, we will still sing from Denson, but also from the Missouri Harmony, Shenandoah Harmony, and Norumbega Harmony.

Chicago Third Sunday Shenandoah Singings

Please come sing from the Shenandoah Harmony at my place in Lincoln Square, 2502 W. Eastwood #1, from 4 to 6 pm this Sunday, March 24. Kindly bring a folding chair if it's convenient; we never know how many people will join us, and seating is limited! Also please feel free to bring refreshments for the break.

As usual, Barry T. Dog will be joining us, so please bear that in mind if you are allergic to or don't care for dogs.

I live in a first-floor walkup with eight stairs. The address is just a block from the Rockwell stop on the Brown Line.

Hope to see you Sunday!
