Mill City Singers Saturday Practices Resume September 9

Article by Claudia Kittock, photos by Rick Kittock

The Mill City Singers, founded and supported by the Friends of the Mill District, returns on Saturday, September 9th. Our rehearsals are held on the 8th floor of the Guthrie and happen on Saturdays from 2:00-3:30pm. There are no auditions and no attendance requirements. We expect you to come when you can and sing with a full heart, surrounded by friends and neighbors.

We are directed by the magical JD Steele, and accompanied by the charming and talented Fred Steele. Together we sing songs of hope, songs of community, and songs of joy and resilience. We remember as we sing, that there is hope and that we are stronger together. Part of the magic of each session is that we are a collection of average singers, but under JD’s leadership and Fred’s piano playing, we become so much more.

If you are interested in coming, please do. Feel free to contact Claudia Kittock at There are no requirements, only an open heart and a willingness to make music!
