Event Description

Join the Family Folk Machine as we sing about human unity on a local and global scale, our responsibilities to one another, neighborliness, and the way our individual voices join together to form a choir, a community, and the world. The Family Folk Machine is sponsored by the University of Iowa Community Credit Union, Tallgrass Business Resources, Dr. Suzanne Stock, Orthodontist, Saunders Vocal Studios, and Murphy Brookfield-Brooks. Free-will donations of $10 for adults and $5 for kids are encouraged.

The Family Folk Machine is a non-profit, intergenerational, non-auditioned choir that welcomes kids and adults of all ages and backgrounds to sing together with a band. We seek to build community through singing songs with our neighbors, to explore American history and culture through song, to foster individual musical growth, and to pursue excellence as an ensemble.

About the director:

The Family Folk Machine is directed by Jean Littlejohn. Jean is an organist and choir director, and she holds a PhD in music theory. Jean lives in Iowa City with her husband Michael Sauder and kids Claire and Ben.
