CultureSpot article about the Community Sings
HISTORY AND BACKGROUND OF THE COMMUNITY FAMILY SINGS
Carpe Diem Arts hosted the first Carpe Diem Community Sing on June 21, 2012 at the Historic Silver Spring B&O Train Station, which was once the home of Class Acts Arts (now Artivate).
We later moved the Sings to the Silver Spring Civic Building soon after it opened, since we were also holding our monthly Community Dances there in the Great Hall. (Click HERE for more history/background on Sings.)
