Song Circles


First Monday Song Circle:

                                    

 Our song circles are normally held on the first Monday of each month at 7:30 PM.  These  are located at the Jewish Community Center in Room 119, which is on  the lower level of the building.  JCC is located at 5601 South Braeswood Boulevard, Houston, TX 77096-3999.

 Meetings consist of a "song circle", allowing each attendee an opportunity for a musical performance, share a song, tall tale, announcement, or other item which he or she may wish to share with the group.   Non-performers are just as welcome as performers. After all, musicians, singers, storytellers, all need an audience.
