It was a great pleasure to Sing Books at Beatley Central Library in Alexandria, VA on 7/7/2018. What a beautiful facility they have there.  Despite the gorgeous weather that day, we had a nice sided crowd to sing along.

Here are the songs we sang, listed in alphabetical order:

*
This song has an instrumental break.  During that time, I played kazoo and invited the audience to play their pretend kazoos or cluck like a chicken.

**********************
View of Statue of Liberty from Governor’s Island
Photo by Emily, July 2018

I can’t express how important Lady Liberty has become to me as a symbol of what the USA SHOULD (but currently does not) stand for. And, like the imprisoned lightening of Lady Liberty’s torch, the words that Emma Lazarus wrote to give voice to Lady Liberty ring out to me like a call to service.

As, of late, I’ve studied the story and history of, and arranged uke chords to accompany myself singing THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, I’ve done the same for Emma Lazarus’s sonnet (and Irving Berlin’s musical setting of its last 5 lines) THE NEW COLOSSUS/GIVE ME YOUR TIRED YOUR POOR.

To me, this is one of the things that DRIVES me as a performer and artist. This is our musical heritage. But these songs also represent aspects of our National Soul. These songs illuminate our history, our founding principles, what we should represent to the world, and the ideals we have not yet, but should strive to attain.

Sing Books visits 30 classes, PreK – 3rd grade, at 3 schools in Northern Virginia in every two week rotation.

Songs are listed randomly to see them individually, as works of art that tell stories, rather than just a stale alphabetical list.  Each title is linked to a post, a kind of cabinet of curiosities, about that song.

In each class, we sang a selection from the following list:
