"Session leaders are artists of the highest quality -- everyone in the community can actively participate in UNISONG".
(RI State Council on the Arts, 12/06)
UNISONG is a non-performance community singing session meeting monthly. UNISONG is led by a different guest musical director each time to explore music from diverse sources. *** Conceived by Jodi Glass, a life-long music lover and community organizer, UNISONG has come to fruition with the help of Kathy Jellison, Priscilla Young, Rachael Warren, Rose Weaver and Cathy Clasper-Torch. “Music is a deeply powerful source for expression and can lead to positive change,” said Jodi. “With that in mind, we seek to bring together people from different cultures, generations, genders and musical experience or interest in order to learn from each other and have a good time making music.”
Participants don’t have to do the following in order to sing along: read music, attend every time, prep for any performance, prep at all, or have previous experience singing with a group. UNISONG has met on the west side, south side and now it’s time for east side. In the true Unisong spirit of collaboration and sharing resources, our host all winter and spring will be the beautiful Rochambeau Library. What better public space than a library, fostering community spirit, involvement and accessibility Have a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or even have dinner nearby, and then come sing. We’re on a bus route and parking is free.
