Songs are a vital part of our lives. First, participants will give presentations on their choice of performers (e.g., Tiny Tim, the Beatles, Mel Torme), composers (e.g., Cole Porter, Jim Webb, Lennon & McCartney), historical period or favourite songs.  Second, we can choose to sing the songs we discuss acapella or with accompaniment.  Just listening is welcome as well.  Third, we explore what makes music appealing.  It’s relaxing, fun and informative.
