North River Sing Community Chorus, based in Jersey City but open to residents of Hoboken, Bayonne, and other surrounding communities, will be performing a free forty-five minute concert of “Fabulous Film Tunes from the Great American Songbook” at the Hoboken Museum on Saturday, June 11 at 5 PM. The singers will assemble at Shipyard Park, just east of the Museum’s main entrance at 1301 Hudson Street. Songs will include “Singin’ in the Rain,” “42nd Street,” and “Moon River.” Lyricists and musicians represented will include Harold Arlen, Jule Styne, Johnny Mercer, and Henry Mancini. In connection with the museum’s current exhibit entitled “Frank Sinatra: The Man, the Voice, and the Fans,” the event will also feature a Sinatra audience sing-along.
North River Sing was founded in 2014 to give friends and neighbors in Jersey City, Bayonne, Hoboken, and beyond who love to sing—and who adore show tunes and jazz standards in particular—an opportunity to blend their voices, share their warmth, and make music as a community.
