Singalong Happy Hour
All Are Welcome!
with Tina Allgeier and April Boyden
Grab a beverage and join us for a fun hour of virtual singing and laughing to help us break up the monotony of being self-quarantined. Music has long been used to help relieve grief and help us feel better. Studies show that music and singing promotes an opportunity for reflection while also creating a sense of community, culture, and spirituality which are essential to dealing with grief. This singalong is not intended to be music therapy, but rather a fun night to singalong with others as we share our common experiences of loss.
NO SINGING EXPERIENCE NEEDED AND YOU CAN MUTE YOUR MIC IF YOFU LIKE!
