Providence, RI: Trinity Repertory Company will hold its first Community Sing event on December 6, 2019, Resident acting company member Jude Sandy, in character as Ebenezer Scrooge, will lead carolers and community choirs down Washington Street to meet the Mayor of Providence, Jorge Elorza. Together they will light the City Hall holiday tree. After the tree lighting, singers will continue caroling on a walk to Burnside Park’s Winter Lights Celebration. This event is free and open to the public and no reservation is required. Those wishing to walk with Trinity Rep should meet at 5:00 pm at the theater, 201 Washington St. More information can be found at www.TrinityRep.com/communitysing.

Trinity Rep’s director of community engagement and creator of the Community Sing, Michelle Cruz, says, “Music is an inspirational part of the holiday season and being able to bring the community together, in song, across our city, gives us all a voice in a time we may not feel heard. This is a unifying event and I’m so glad we can all come together, whether you’re a Trinity Rep subscriber, one of our community partners, or someone who needs a little holiday cheer, this is for everyone. Be sure to join us and lend your voice.”

The Community Sing represents a partnership between Trinity Rep, The City of Providence, Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy, and The Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism (AC+T). Songbooks will be provided by Boscov’s.
