Microsoft Word - Glee Final Ad.docxEvery Wednesday at 10 a.m., the Multi-Purpose Room at the Boca Grande Community Center is filled with the sound of harmony. It’s the sound of Grande Glee. It’s the sound of Boca Grande’s happiest singers.
Here’s why Glee is so Grande.
You choose the song you want to star in, and the rest of us back you up. Together we work on one new song each week, starring a different lead singer. It’s a chance to improve your vocal quality while you’re having fun.
This year’s theme is relationships, so sing about friends, lovers, challenges or any kind of relationship that moves you. Pick your song, and we’ll find the sheet music.
Sharon Ponte and her keyboard warm us up, help us rehearse all the previous numbers and then work with us on one new song every session. There’s no memorizing. No stress. Just a chance to star in a song you love.
Grande Glee costs just $20 a week, with 20 percent supporting the Community Center. We meet once a week – currently it’s Wednesday morning from 10 to 11 a.m. – but if enough singers can make it, we will change the time to Friday at 10 a.m.
For more information, email Erica at, or just come on Wednesday morning and be prepared to have fun.
