What is a song that reminds you of home? What’s a song that you recall dancing to at a school dance?
This fall, you will have the opportunity to come together–as part of the Life Story Club–and share the music that reminds you of some of the most magical, meatiest, funniest, scariest, and most significant moments of your life, here in Brooklyn and beyond! This is a great way to unwind, reminisce, and make new friends through music and storytelling. The facilitator will come prepared to each session with music-related prompts to facilitate conversation and connection. At the end of the series, you will receive a printed book, complete with your stories and songs. This series will culminate in a special celebratory event, where participants will reflect on music, memory, and their involvement in the series.
Please come to the first session with a song to share with the group, based on the day’s prompt question. Registration will be closed after the third session.
