Yes, there is a “Rounds Resounding Day”. In fact, it is TODAY! Let’s celebrate with a round or two! They are a musical thing to do for fun.  Rounds are great whether you are young or old to (1) use and develop listening skills (am I singing as loud as those around me, am I in tune), (2) learn to sing harmony, and (3) to develop independence in singing a part.

Here is a starter list to get you going:

  • Row, Row, Row Your Boat
  • Make New Friends
  • Dona Nobis Pacem
  • Hey, Ho, Nobody Home
  • Oh, How Lovely Is the Evening
  • Shalom Chaverim
  • Sing, Sing Together
  • I Love the Flowers
  • Hear the Lively Song of the Frogs

What is your favorite round? If it isn’t listed here, please post it in the comments!
