There's something powerful about a whole room filled with people singing the same song! Experience a classic all-ages sing-along at the Nov. 19 Kids' Concert, 1 p.m. at the Bing Crosby Theater in Downtown Spokane.

Two of Spokane's familiar folk singer/guitarists will lead everyone in old favorites from the U.S. and around the globe.

We will have lyrics projected on the Bing's movie screen so readers can sing along! A sample of some of the selections: "Guantanamera," "Yellow Submarine,"
"Buffalo Gals," "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," and "Puff the Magic Dragon."

The concert is free thanks in part to event donors Harvard Park Children's Learning Center North, Numerica Credit Union, Rocket Bakeries, and Pizza Pipeline.
