PhonOcord Playhouse
Song Fest

People who have good voices love to sing. But then, so do people who haven't. This makes it very simple for the PhonOcord owner. The musically talented can be asked to contribute solos or duets or quartettes while others who would ordinarily be relegated to the ranks of "spear-carriers" in opera will sound fine in group singing. If they do insist on singing solos, it will add to the general gaiety anyway.

Group Singing: Following are songs which are familiar to everyone and which are especially good for group singing. Once a group gets going the problem is how to stop them. "My Old Kentucky Home," "When You and I Were Young, Maggie," "Old Black Joe," "Jingle Bells, ' "Rueben and Rachel," "Tenting Tonight," "The Old Oaken Bucket," "Coming Through the Rye," "Wonderful One," "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," "Down By the Old Mill Stream," "Bicycle Built For Two," "Long, Long Trail," "Old Folks at Home," "Silver Threads Among the Gold," "East Side, West Side," "Ole Man River," "A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody," "Home on the Range " "School bays," "The Bulldog on the Bank," "Oh Susannah," "In the Gloaming " "The Sunshine of Your Smile " "Little Grey Home in the West," "Auld Lang Syne," "Sweet Adeline," "My Wild Irish Rose " "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "Flow Gently, Sweet Afton,""Because," "Indian Love Call," "Moonlight and Roses," "Oh Promise Me," "I've Got Shoes," "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad.''

These and many more may be found in any of the standard song-books.
