Singalong

Musicians gather on Friday at the Reading Room to perform

Warm up your vocal chords and head over to the Reading Room Cafe.

The Reading Room is hosting a community singalong with artists Jennifer Louise Taylor, Ken Hall, and Rose Birney on Friday, Aug. 17.

The musicians aim to share their love of music while building on the idea of a traditional kitchen party.

“Our goal is to foster a musical experience where the audience become participants, in an informal setting where the focus is more on fun than your vocal range,” Taylor said in a statement.

The line-up includes well-known and newer songs by Canadian artists.

“This music is our oral history-in-the-making and it’s worth celebrating,” Taylor said.

Kathe Drover, owner of Reading Room, said bringing the trio, who regularly performs in Victoria, to Sooke was in response to demand of patrons.

“The entertainers and very well known,” Drover said. “There’s a lot of demand in Sooke for musical events, people tend to enjoy them.”

The event is open to everyone, of all vocal abilities. Song sheets will be available to the audience.

The community singalong runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Reading Room Cafe in the Evergreen Centre (6660 Sooke Road). Tickets can be purchased at the cafe.
