SingPositive Launches Season: Outdoor Music for the Whole Family in Jamaica Plain

Print More

SingPostive, an intergenerational community choir in Jamaica Plain, is excited to launch our 2021-2022 season -- outdoors and in-person. And there are two open rehearsals happening on September 12 and September 19

Joel Sindelar founded the choir in 2012, and it has since grown into a vibrant community where singers of all ages make music together. We sing fun, eclectic music from many different styles, from folk to world to musical theatre and R&B, and we offer musical programming for the whole family, including a kids choir, ukulele class, and supervised playground time for younger children during the adult choir portion of rehearsal. Kids younger than 3 join free!

This fall we’re excited to welcome a new co-director, Lexi Ugelow. Lexi is a wonderful singer, teacher, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, with lots of experience working with young children. We’re thrilled to welcome her onboard! Our other co-director, Lysander Jaffe, has worked with SingPositive since 2018. He brings a wealth of experience as a vocalist, choir director, and arranger in many styles.
