BEVERLY HILLS—The Beverly Hills City Council, Mayor, community and the L.A. Lawyers Philharmonic group will participate in a free concert to the public for a “Sing-Along with the Mayor” event that will be held on Thursday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m.
According to press release from Therese Kosterman, Public Information Manager for the city of Beverly Hills, Mayor-elect John Mirisch will kick of the festivities with Beverly Hills, Our Home program which will incorporate Sing-Along events for the year and other fun, including suggestions by the community for group activities.
“Talent is not required, as I can personally attest,” Mirisch said. “But the idea is for the community to be together and enjoy ourselves. Our Sing-Along motto is: “It’s more important to sing out than to sing well. Just sing.”
