#lifeyourvoice - Saturday, May 16th

Reported by on 5/12/20

#liftyourvoice is a do-it-yourself, community music event. On May 16 at 7 pm, go outside your home - front yard, backyard, balcony, patio, open window - and perform the melody found on our project website. NO NEED to match tempo or rhythm with anyone else you may hear doing this. The interplay between musicians will be as beautifully random as the calls of songbirds...but whether you hear anyone else or not, you will know you are part of an enormous performance, and the whole is far greater than any one person could perceive.

This project is for everyone! All ages, all skill levels, all voices, and all instruments. On the website, you'll find sheet music along with simplified instrument parts for young players. We have included recorder, ukulele, guitar, and piano. We currently have participants across the Chicago suburbs and in ever-growing pockets throughout Illinois and the country.

Please take a photo or video of your participation and share it on social media using the hashtag #liftyourvoice. Let's see how big this thing gets! It's uplifting to think that here will be a live, public music event for everyone that CANNOT BE CANCELLED!

Share this information with everyone you know! There is still time for people to discover our project and join in!
