World Singing Day is about uniting the global family through song and being a catalyst for world peace. Founded by American Scott Johnson in 2012, it is an annual, worldwide celebration of our common humanity that creates community, connection, and global well-being.World Singing Day is not religious or political, nor does it promote any one country or culture. It aims to transcend those differences and celebrate what we all share as human beings.
Song Leader Jennifer Noxon and some of the singers from Almonte’s Rhythm and Song Community Choir will be celebrating World Singing Day at 11:45 this Saturday morning on Mill St. at the Naismith sculpture in downtown Almonte.
Singers and wannabe singers of all ages are invited to gather on Sat. at 11:15 behind the Post Office near the gazebo to do a quick vocal warm-up and learn a song or two. Singers will then move to the Naismith sculpture outside of Baker Bob’s to sing for the passersby on Mill St. This will happen rain or shine – bring a colourful umbrella and help us celebrate just how fun singing with others can be.
It always helps to have an audience so encourage friends and family to come too!
