NEW HAVEN - Dwight Hall, the Center for Public Service and Social Justice at Yale, will host its first-ever Community Sing on Thursday, Oct. 23, 2008, at 7 p.m. at Dwight Hall Chapel, 67 High St., New Haven.

All are welcome to enjoy free hot apple cider, music from many traditions, and a chance to celebrate and promote service and justice work in New Haven.

The event is free and open to the public and will be facilitated by Micah Hendler, a Yale undergraduate who spent the summer studying traditional music in Senegal. Hendler will teach participants four to five simple songs from around the world. Following this, guests are invited to linger over cider. No musical experience is necessary, said Mari Oye, a Yale student helping to organize the event. Just enthusiasm and a desire for fellowship.

Dwight Hall hopes to make Community Sings a regular event, and encourages donations to benefit Shelter Now! a campaign dedicated to reopening the New Haven Overflow Shelter.
