The Golden Tones chorus celebrates the season with a free lunchtime sing-a-long concert today, Aug. 31 at 12:30 p.m. outside the Natick Stop & Shop supermarket (corner of Routes 9 and 27). Bring your appetite and join the fun as the grill sizzles and the chorus serves up favorite songs, many from their recent Silver Jubilee concert.
Through the generosity of Natick Stop & Shop, proceeds from today's BBQ will benefit the chorus’ continuing musical outreach program, which brings 50 uplifting concerts per year, many to underserved audiences in the community.
Along with the 12:30 p.m. show, enjoy hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and beverages at reasonable prices from 11:30 am to 4 pm.
If you are retired or semi-retired and love music, join the fun! There are NO AUDITIONS to join, and no attendance requirements to belong. If you enjoy singing, dancing or playing an instrument, the chorus welcomes you - all kinds of performers enhance the chorus’ weekly shows.
Come bring joyful entertainment into the community and enjoy the company of like-minded music-lovers from towns all over MetroWest, including Framingham, Hudson, Marlborough, Natick, Sherborn, Waltham, Wayland, Wellesley, Weston and Westwood.
Open rehearsals begin Tuesday, Sept. 3 at the Wayland Senior Center (corner of Routes 27 and 20) from 10 a.m. to noon.
On Tuesday, Sept. 10, come at 9:30 a.m. for a Welcome Coffee Reception featuring home-made goodies, hosted by the chorus and the Wayland Council on Aging.
