This purpose of this circle is to spread songs which can be sung together in halls and on the field, and to teach the songs which will be used for the procession into Opening Ceremonies the next day. This year the allied East and Midrealm will be marching in together, so we will be learning two songs of the Middle Kingdom to sing with our friends as we march. We will also teach the Eastern Songs we will sing in that same march, "Born on the Listfield", and several other songs as time permits.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to come and learn a song or two. You don't have to be a "bard" to participate! All Easterners with any interest in group singing are highly encouraged to join us. You don't need to bring anything but your enthusiasm and willingness to learn (although you may find a light to be handy as evening falls).
"Sing for the East" songbooks will be available for reference during the circle - and for purchase if you want to take one home! We'll also have word sheets for other songs we'll teach.
Grateful thanks to Their Royal Majesties Kenric and Avelina for their support and to their staff for their assistance.
Yours in Service,
Linette de Gallardon
