Last week, we told you about “Celebrate One Wallingford” – a party to celebrate our community together, but it bears repeating because of all the cool activities that are planned for the event. One of the highlights of the evening will be an all-neighborhood-inclusive musical component. Kathleen Cromp, the party’s organizer explains:
Connie Voget and Laurie McCray – both from the ‘hood – are helping to recruit, shape, organize the music and musicians. Connie, a community activist in numerous ways, is a music educator / musician herself. Laurie is a (shy)fiddler with a large network of musical friends from the contra dance music scene. The music will likely unfold in the moment – Wallingfordly organic. Some planned, some improv. Some old, some young. Some traditional, some irreverent and cheeky. Some vocal, some instrumental.
We want it to be inviting to all – and would still welcome other neighborhood musicians to chime in. If someone is interested – contact Connie Voget at [email protected] – or just show up with an instrument. Kid musicians absolutely welcome! (By the way, space and set-up is not conducive to any complicated set-up.)
The celebration is open to all and in addition to the neighborhood music, there will be activities for kids, cookie decorating, a door prize, sweet and savory faire, and beverages for kids and adults. You won’t want to miss it!
