UPCOMING PROGRAMS AT THE ATHENAEUM:
Friday, February 23, 5-7pm: SALON – Founder Jodi Glass in a musical conversation on UNISONG. A non-performance community singing session, UNISONG is led by a different guest musical director each month to explore music from diverse sources and bring together people from different cultures, generations, genders, and musical experience in order to learn from each other and have a good tome. Participants needn’t read music, prepare, or have previous experience singing with a group. Join us to converse, and to sing or just listen!
