For a Living Room Choir BIG SING

Saturday, December 10th

4-5:30pm

At Grace Lutheran Church
15 Santa Fe, El Cerrito CA (street parking, 10 minute walk from El Cerrito Plaza BART)

We’ll be sharing songs we’ve been working on this session!

There will be some light teaching: sing along, or just listen.

By donation; suggested sliding scale $10-25. All proceeds go toward the continuation of this community choir. No amount is too small or too large – we can use it all to support this work and community. You can make your donation through our Payments page or at the event itself. Seats are not reserved.

Safety Acknowledgement:

Singing is still considered a high risk activity, and we are a Covid-Cautious Community with a variety of health concerns and comfort levels.
We are asking all attendees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and flu wherever eligible (we understand that there are age and health limitations on certain vaccines).
As with most things nowadays, please do not attend if you’re under the weather or have a recent known exposure to COVID-19.
Thank you for doing your part to keep others safe!

OUR PLAN FOR RAIN:

If it’s raining or seems like it might rain, we will meet inside the Sanctuary of Grace Lutheran Church.

  • We will provide N95 masks at the door that are duck-bill shaped and infinitely easier to sing in than the standard kind. You are welcome to wear your own N95 if you prefer. Small children and folks with breathing difficulties can wear the masks that work for them (and children under 2 are not expected to mask at all.)
  • Once inside, we’ll encourage social distancing, and have the windows open and fans and filters on.
  • The choir members will all be rapid-tested for COVID day-of the event, and they too will be masked, except the leaders while leading or other moments of needing facial communication.
  • Warm beverages will be provided in the church kitchen! Please enjoy them outside the Sanctuary to prevent spills.
  • Because the windows will be open, please dress warmly or bring layers.


OUR PLAN FOR SUN:

If it’s warm and dry we’ll meet outside in the courtyard of Grace Lutheran Church.

  • We will be spread out on the lawn of the church’s courtyard.
  • Masks are optional; most of our choir members choose to unmask when outdoors. All choir members are rapid-tested for COVID day-of the event.
  • The sun will set during our gathering – bring extra warm clothes, blankets etc and get cozy! It can get really cold once the sin dips behind the building. We’ll have lights.
  • Chairs are available; you are also welcome to bring camping chairs or picnic blankets.
  • Warm water for tea and hot chocolate available at a table near the church’s kitchen.

Thank you for keeping our community safe so we can sing in person once more!
