Songbirds Girl Scout Choir needs you

“Sing, sing together, merrily, merrily sing!” Girl Scouts sing for lots of reasons: to keep traditions alive, gather in congenial comradeship, create memories, learn new things, expand our horizons, make joyful music together, but most of all TO HAVE FUN !

The Songbirds Girl Scout Choir, under the direction of Penny Roberts, began in the fall of 2002 as an outgrowth of the 90th Anniversary Roundup in the legacy Mountain Prairie Girl Scout Council. We had so much fun, we wanted to continue singing together. Our youngest member was about four-years-old at the time, and often rode on her mom’s shoulders when we sang with their Girl Scout troop. Penny had wanted to be a choir director since she first saw more than 10,000 Girl Scouts and adults from around the country gather in the amphitheater at the 1962 Roundup in Button Bay, Vermont to raise their voices in song.

The Songbirds meet on the second Saturday of every month from September through April. They gather at the Berthoud Elementary School at 560 Bunyan Avenue in one of the classrooms. A guitar class is offered each month at 9 a.m. for those singers age 10 and up, who want to join in the fun and learn how to play guitar chords to accompany the choir. From 10 a.m. to noon the group sings old songs, new songs, fun songs, campfire songs, foreign language songs, rounds, graces, folk songs, motion songs, clapping games, Lemmi sticks, and on and on it goes.

Songbirds are looking for new members! Please bring your troop, friends, neighbors, adults and children. Anyone is welcome. There is no charge and no registration. Come once or join for the rest of the year and beyond.

Choir members are provided with three different songbooks and royal blue logo shirts are worn to special performances.

Songbirds sing in performance whenever requested. For example, we will have a performance and a sing-along at the Open House at Meadow Mountain Ranch on Sunday, September 23, 2018. We’ll help others have fun while they explore our wonderful mountain camp facility. If you’d like a taste of what the Songbirds do, come join us there.

A flyer is below with contact information if needed. “All together, sing together, lalalalalalala la la  la!” and “Sing, sing, sing, come my friends and sing with me. Round up your voices, fill the air with music free.”  Please join us, one and all!
