Pitch Perfect with Georgia Gray and Rock U (ages 12-18) (By RSVP)

1 February 2019 @ 19 h 00 min - 22 h 00 min

For ages 12-18.

Join us for an evening of music at the Library. We’ll watch the movie Pitch Perfect, starring Anna Kendrick, and then perform the one of the songs featured in the movie with the help of singing teacher Georgia Gray of Georgia Gray Voice Studio and music teacher Matt Black of Rock U. We’ll learn how to sing “Cups”, but with added harmonies and rhythms. Georgia will teach the vocal parts while Matt works on percussion with those who would prefer not to sing (or guitar for kids who want to bring their own).

Come in early and try your hand at some movie and music trivia, then we’ll watch the film (and there will be plenty of snacks).

Beginner and advanced musicians alike are all welcome to join, as well as aspiring songwriters, singers and fans of music and good movies. Snacks and drinks will be provided by the Library.
