June 15, 2021 update

The community met via Zoom on June 6, 2021, to discuss next steps for resuming in-person singing this summer. A committee is exploring locations for regular outdoor weekend singing during the summer; we are trying to be as safe and inclusive as possible. Our next steps for these regular singings, as well as any open-invite private singings, will be announced on the wmshc-announcements email list, so please be sure you are signed up if you would like to be a part of those conversations.

The Pioneer Valley All-Day Singing, usually held on the Saturday before the first Sunday in July, is canceled for 2021.
