Have you missed singing in your choir during these summer months? Then join The First Congregational Church of Greenwich’s last “Summer Sings” of the season.

The church invites participants to “come as you are” on Wednesday, Aug. 28, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. to share in an energized rehearsal and an instant performance of what it calls “the best anthems in the world,” including Brahms’ How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place from Requiem, Beethoven’s Hallelujah from Mount of Olives, Handel’s Hallelujah from Messiah, Haydn’s The Heavens Are Telling from The Creation and many more favorites.

Music will be provided and the evening will be directed by the church’s Director of Music, Craig Scott Symons. Hospitality, refreshments and fun are all included — free. No sign-up is necessary. Just come ready to sing.

Participants will meet in the air-conditioned sanctuary of The First Congregational Church at 108 Sound Beach Avenue across from Binney Park in Old Greenwich.

But you don’t have to be an expert at hitting the high notes to attend. Non-singers are also welcome to enjoy the evening.

For more information, call 203-637-1791 or visit Fccog.org.
