Free singing lessons for females
CENTREVILLE — If you like to sing in the shower or the car, or have sung in a school chorus, or a church choir, Harmony on the Bay is ready to teach how your love for singing can be improved.
Harmony on the Bay is a female a cappella chorus, chartered by Sweet Adelines International. The chorus rehearses on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. at the American Legion in Centreville and welcomes women to come and check them out.
“Give us one hour for six Tuesday evenings,” said Tracy Franz, the group’s team leader, “and we will give you the skills you need to experience all the fun of solo or group singing.”
The course, “Ready, Set, Sing,” is taught by Roni Gapetz, music director for Harmony on the Bay. Gapetz has over 20 years of experience as a music director and states that “developing harmonious chords that can be enjoyed by singers and listeners has always been my greatest joy.”
Beginning and experienced singers are welcome, and all learning materials are free.
The next series of free “Read, Set, Sing” classes will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. starting Sept. 12 and finishing on Oct. 17. The classes will meet at the American Legion at 2619 Centreville Road in Centreville.
“You don’t even need to be able to read music. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to sing richly and resonantly and produce ear-pleasing harmony. You’ll soon be enjoying the ringing of beautiful a cappella chords, the company of a great bunch of fellow singers, and the thrill of performing for enthusiastic audiences,” said Gapetz. “This event has been funded in part by the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council and the Maryland State Arts Council.”
