19th annual Mid-Winter Singing Festival


This year’s Mid-Winter Singing Festival, hosted by Ten Pound Fiddle, is a two-day event offering a chance to celebrate a love of music, regardless of your experience level.

At 7:30 p.m. Friday (Feb. 3), Jean Chorazyczewski, Lori Fithian, Mark Dvorak and Joel Mabus will lead guests in a Community Sing, with lyric sheets for the folk tunes passed out in advance.

11 a.m. Saturday (Feb. 4), Dvorak will present a free children’s concert so youngsters can take part in the fun.

Chorazyczewski, Fithian, Dvorak and Mabus will hold another Community Sing Saturday afternoon from 2 to 3 for those who missed out the night before.

There will also be workshops from 11:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Saturday, including a jam-along with Chorazyczewski and Fithian where guests choose which songs they want to sing (anything from pop to jazz to TV theme songs), a Spontaneous Folk Ensemble with Dvorak (instruments are welcome but not necessary) and a ukulele group with Mabus. An all-day wristband is free for kids under 18 and college students with an ID and $20 for adults.

“Outside of established churches and organized choirs, there are not many places people who love to sing can just belt it out,” said Sally Potter, the event’s founder. “The Mid-Winter Singing Festival is designed for people who love to sing to do just that, along with hundreds of other like-minded souls.”
