Rise Up Singing Circle

Published: June 25, 2021


Join us on Zoom for our safely distanced approach to our Rise Up Singing Circle.  Even though a Zoom meeting does not allow more than one microphone to be used at a time, we have been able to enjoy singing and gathering together from the safety of our own homes on our computers, smart phones or iPads.   One advantage of meeting online is that participants can be living anywhere, so you can invite your friends and family to join in.

We meet at 7 PM on the first Thursday of each month. One week before the Singing Circle, you will be asked to send in one or two song requests with book name, page number, and song title, and we compile our song list from those requests. If you wish to lead the song you have requested, you are welcome to do so. For the Zoom meeting, we mute all the microphones except that of the song leaders.  The muted participants sing along at home.  After singing, we open all the microphones so that we can chat and check in with each other to share news.

We will have our next Zoom meeting for the singing circle on Thursday, July 1, at 7 pm.  If you would like to be added to the Zoom invitation list, please send your email address to:


You will need a copy of the songbook, Rise Up Singing/Rise Again, so that you will have the words to the songs. They are available at www.Riseupandsing.org or online bookstores
