Renowned composer and educator Alice Parker will lead one of her SINGs on Tuesday, July 24, at 7:30 p.m. at the Federated Church of Charlemont.

Now in her early 90s, Parker began similar singing programs more than 40 years ago as an introduction to her Writing for Voices classes. The concept grew to include church congregations and choirs, and again to include all people who wish to sing together.

She has led sings all over the United States and Canada, according to the website for Melodious Accord Inc., which Parker founded.

Singers of all ages and abilities can join Parker and her students as she leads the audience in singing folk tunes and hymns.
