Who We Are
Imagine a community choir where your whole family is welcomed, where children are as important to the show as adults. Imagine a time to work together as a "village", in service to the broader community. Imagine singing your favorite music– everything from the Beatles, to Jazz, to Motown, to Imagine Dragons– plus amazing music from around the world. Now imagine singing it in harmony, with a professional conductor and band.
This is the vision of SingPositive. Now entering its tenth season, SingPositive is a community of more than 25 families singing together on Sunday afternoons, from February to May and from September to December. Some families include three generations, and we have members ranging in age from 3 months to 70+ years. We perform at Jamaica Plain community events like the Lantern Parade and the Wake Up the Earth Festival, while preparing for our culminating shows in May and December.
Rehearsals are a combination of focused work and fun, meeting both the adults' needs for improvement while meeting the kids' needs for humor and excitement. Adults sing in harmony, and the children learn their own parts for some songs and join an adult section for others. Children can join the adult choir as full members, or break out with classes designed just for them. We even have a Kid's Band that accompanies the choir for a few songs every semester.
It's an amazing amount of fun, and an amazing way to create and live in a sense of community. Its also one of the best and most natural music learning environments for kids we've ever seen.
Our next season starts on September 11- join us!
