Description

The Machine is celebrating its fifth anniversary this spring! Join us in celebrating five years of inter-generational music-making with a selection of favorite songs from previous concerts as well as one newly written song called “This Machine.”

The Family Folk Machine is an inter-generational, non-auditioned choir supported by the Iowa City/Johnson County Senior Center that welcomes kids and adults of all ages and backgrounds to sing together with a folk 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.

This event is made possible by a generous donation from the University of Iowa Community Credit Union and support from the Iowa City/Johnson County Senior Center. Any questions? Feel free to call the Senior Center at 319-356-5220.
