Logan Square New-Singers' Group

These singings are canceled until further notice. If you are interested in taking over leading these singings, please contact Deanna at the e-mail address below.

These singings ordinarily meet the second Saturday of every month in Logan Square. We have a (mostly) permanent home at the Comfort Station, a wheelchair accessible one-room arts space with excellent acoustics, located at 2579 N. Milwaukee Ave. (While the focus of these meetings is to help new singers learn how to sing shapenote, experienced singers are also welcome to attend.) When the singings get moved to 4754 N. Leavitt St., it is in the Berry United Methodist Church in Lincoln Square.
