Community Music Programs

Foundry Hall offers the following programs every month:

Foundry Hall’s twice monthly  Song Swaps are an informal gathering of friends who like to sing and play music together.  Join Foundry Hall volunteer and past board member Joe Foster at the Warren Senior Center on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays at 7pm.   Acoustic instruments of all types are welcome, as are singers and musicians of all ages and skill levels. These offer a great opportunity to get used to singing and playing with others in a non-competitive, affirming environment.

Foundry Hall presents South Haven’s longest-running, all-ages Open Mic night.  Hosted by Paul Hogan, Open Mic is the 3rd Thursday of every month in the lower level (“The River Bottom”) of the Black River Tavern!   Performer sign-up begins at 6 pm, so come on down early and enjoy some BRT food then stay for the open mic featuring South Haven and surrounding area’s best amateur musician’s in the spotlight.  Bring your own talent and share it!

 

TuneBugs is a free, drop-in music exploration program held every Friday at 10:30am at the South Haven Memorial Library.  Led by Foundry Hall volunteers Lotte Resek and Michael Vanden Tak,  Tunebugs is geared toward little people, ages 1-5, and their families. Singing songs, exploring instruments and have musical fun with friends and family, Tunebugs is also a great opportunity to practice taking turns and playing together while trying new things.  Like “Tunebugs” on facebook to keep up with any scheduling information and other info…
