Summer 2019 was the second season that Diver Library brought our song writing workshop Let’s Make a Song to our summer reading program. We wrote, performed, and recorded songs with kids, teens, and adults. It was a hit! And guess what?! This year, we had a gig! Enjoy these picture from recording day, our gig at the UHLS Expedition Party, and the signing of CD’s for our adoring fans. Thanks to all of our supporters for the great photos!
Let’s Make a Song will be back again next summer. Please join us! In the meantime, lookout for the release of 2019’s album Let’s Make a Song: A Universe of Stories!
Let’s Make a Song! 2018
For 8 weeks during the summer of 2018, rockers of all ages gathered at Diver Library to write original music—to make songs. Some of these songs were silly, some thoughtful, some beautiful, and at least one was very scary! On August 15th the library closed its doors to the public, and with the help of some 518 friends, was transformed into a recording studio. On that day, drums slammed, guitars wept, piano keys sparkled, and kids giggled. “Lets Make a Song!” was born!
In September, the gang was invited to WEXT studios to talk about their music with 97.7’s very own Chris Wienk! The program aired on the radio Tuesday, December 4th, but you can listen to it online anytime at http://www.wextradio.org/post/listen-local-518-lets-make-song.
