Summer Sings: Time to have fun with the FCC

Every Monday in August, an old-fashioned sing-along will attract scores of choral-music fans from throughout Connecticut and New York to a church in Fairfield.But instead of singing traditional summertime fare, these folks will be raising their voices for the likes of Brahms, Mozart and Bernstein. Amazingly, experience is not required.
Beginning Monday, Aug. 6, the Fairfield County Chorale will host its ever-popular series of Summer Sings at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Fairfield's Southport section.
"The audience is the choir at these events," explains FCC Executive Director John Parkinson, adding that all that is needed from participants is a willingness to have fun.
"A varied selection of well-known choral music will be performed under the batons of accomplished conductors" -- a different conductor at each event.
