TICONDEROGA - The Cornerstone Alliance Church, located at 178 Montcalm St. in Ticonderoga, will host an "Open Mic" coffee house Thursday, Jan. 20, 7-9:30 p.m.
"If you happen to play a musical instrument or sing, we encourage anyone who would like to perform to schedule a time slot," said Pastor Charlie Bolstridge. "All ages are welcome."
Cornerstone Alliance Church will offer refreshments at no charge during the event.
"All we do ask is that the music be restricted concerning words that would not be appropriate in a family atmosphere or church establishment," Bolstridge said. "You may use CD instrumental tracks for background music; play your instrument and sing, or even just play an instrumental solo.
"Song selections from all genres are permitted," he said. "There are many contemporary as well as folk style songs with musical background tracks available for you on the market today on CD format. Duets, trios, quartets and music groups are welcome and encouraged to attend."
Cornerstone Alliance hopes to make this an on going event..
Anyone who would like to perform should call 597-4240 for additional information or to schedule a time slot.
"This is an invitation to all who love music," Bolstridge said. "We sure hope to see you there."
