“The idea is to get people - of all ages - singing together in a social setting,” said Siemsen. “And it seems like it’s an idea whose time has come.” 

“Community singing is popping up all over the place,” said Dvorak, who is artist-in-residence at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. “We just held the first community sing in Rockford, Illinois, Plymouth, Indiana. and Mt. Morris, Wisconsin. And earlier in the year I participated in the sixteenth annual Mid-Winter Singing Festival in East Lansing MI,” he said. “Craig, Julie and I are thrilled and ready to bring our program back to Mequon."

The songs are chosen beforehand and lyric books are provided to the audience.

"The experience can be transforming," said Siemsen. "We try to choose familiar songs that the audience may already know, but we also like to challenge them with other types of songs that may be unfamiliar.”

General admission is $18 advance, $22 the day of the show. Students with ID $10. Purchase online at BrownPaperTickets. For more information visit
