The Choral Society welcomed back their members with a Homecoming Picnic on September 19, 2021 at Oak Park in Santa Barbara.  It was a fun-filled afternoon with laughter and conversation, but especially singing!

Everyone brought a picnic lunch, and then launched into singing a number of tunes from the Beer Choir Hymnal.  Beer Choir Twin Cities, founded in 2017, is the flagship chapter of the national Beer Choir movement founded by composer Michael Engelhardt in 2015. The Beer Choir Hymnal is a songbook of 40 drinking song classics, original works, and favorite melodies updated with irreverent lyrics. Friends meet at a local pub mostly to sing together, but also raise a glass or two. 

The Choral Society plans to sponsor a couple of Beer Choir gatherings in Santa Barbara this season for anyone who would like to come.  So stay tuned for the dates and polish up your favorite beer stein!
