Sumner’s Summer Offerings
With Music Director Dr. Mark Sumner

Mondays and Thursday

7:00 to 8:30 pm

For the Zoom link and a schedule of Offerings email Mark at sngwtme@gmail.com!

 

Join Mark on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7 to 8:30 PM for weekly Zoom singing exercises! Through late August Mark is covering a variety of musical areas some specific and others quite broad. The hope is there is something of interest at each session AND, upon cursory review, something that will draw YOU in!
 

For those having Zoom fatigue these activities involve you in ways that should minimize those effects. Judging from initial reactions, this may very well continue into the Fall so keep your eye out for that news!
