The Beat – Making Music at the J
January 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
This month: Folk Music facilitated by Irv Moscowitz!
The JCC is excited to host the second season of “The Beat,” welcoming all to an informal setting where we will play, sing, clap, or dance along with a variety of music that has Jewish connections. Sheet music will be made available in advance to those who want to play or sing (register to receive the music links). Or borrow one of our hand-percussion instruments and play along…no preparation required! Or simply come and enjoy the music and snacks.
This session will include songs such as “Sloop John B,” “Times they are a changing,” “Don’t think twice, it’s alright,” “Desperado,” “Sweet Baby James,” “City of New Orleans,” “I got a name,” “Sounds of Silence,” “Turn Turn Turn,” “Halleleujah,” “Leaving on a jet plane,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Fire and Rain,” “The Night they drove Old Dixie Down,” “Both Sides Now,” “Mr. Bojangles,” “If I had a hammer,” “Eve of Destruction,” “Teach your Children,” “The Boxer,” “This land is your land,” as well as some other Israeli favorites!
Participants who wish to bring their instruments are asked to register in advance so the facilitator can send them the music a couple of weeks before the session.
Musicians and vocalists of all abilities are welcome! Listeners are also enthusiastically welcome to join! We even have a few instruments available for those who might not have their own. Contact us for more information.
