Sing Thing at Gwillim & Constancia’s home is cancelled for Thursday, October 27, 2016. The next meeting will be on November 10, 2016.

For those of you who haven’t been in the past, Sing Thing is just an opportunity for people who like music, particularly singing, to sit around a table and learn some stuff together. The group has a diverse selection of songs that are a mix of filk, SCA-original, and period pieces. There’s no “talent” required; nobody’s judgy; the only expectation is that you come ready to sing and have fun. And you might want to bring a binder to hold all the great music!
