The annual FSSGB members’ concert is always a popular event. Our members perform songs which range from traditional ballads to original compositions, and from instrumental to a cappella pieces. Some of the instruments that have been played at this concert in the past include violin, cello, banjo, mandolin, guitar, bass, keyboard and concertina. Some FSSGB members who have performed at this event have gone on to have successful performing careers, such as Elijah Wald, Mark Ryer, Fool’s Errand and Merle Roesler.
Our hosts will be Lori Fassman and Paul Beck. They are long-time FSSGB members, and are both past Presidents of FSSGB.
FSSGB members (including new members!) are invited to sign up to perform – one song or a spoken word piece. You may perform alone or with others. Some performers have been participating for years; others will do so for the first time. Children are most welcome. The program will feature professional musicians as well as living room folk enthusiasts. All are welcome. The Midweek Singers are an important part of the program as are the many members who show up especially for this event. The audience is always supportive and lively.
Contact Lori Fassman at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up by January 16.
Proceeds from this show help keep the Society strong – we thank the performers and the audience for making this event possible.
