Music on the Hill hosts a series of four stand-alone music reading sessions, each led by a different conductor and featuring a different composer(s). No preparation, no performance, no advance registration, no worries -- just walk in and sing! All are welcome, including students.
Singers may choose a familiar favorite choral work or try something new -- or both. Join in for one session or for many. Music and refreshments provided.
Summer Sings take place from 7 to 9 p.m. at Wilton Presbyterian Church, 48 New Canaan Road, Wilton. Donations welcome.

About Music on the Hill
Music on the Hill promotes engagement with music by offering workshops, the Summer Sings! series, and four performing ensembles -- Summer Chorus, Festival Chorus, Chamber Chorus, and the Jubilate Ringers handbell choir -- all under the leadership of artistic directors David H. Connell (D.M.A.) and Ellen Dickinson (M.M.)
Music on the Hill ensembles are project-based: participants join for one music project -- one rehearsal/concert cycle -- at a time. As a result, each ensembles includes both new and returning singers/ringers. Ensembles are short-term time commitments.

Music on the Hill is an independent non-profit organization funded by generous donors and by a grant from the CT Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
