2015-2016 Sing Ontario Sing Challenge

2015-2016 Sing Ontario Sing - "Lend a Voice"

by the 3rd Uxbridge Brownies

Girl Guides of Canada Ontario Sing Ontario Sing 2015-16

All songs are a ‘Round’, an ‘Echo’, ‘Repetitive’ or ‘Familiar’ so they are easy to sing along with. This will enable those who know the songs to ‘lend a voice’ to help and encourage others to sing!


Rounds are short, simple songs that repeat themselves. Divide the singers into 2 groups and decide which group will start (a stronger person who knows the song can lead). Group 1 sings the first line of the round. When they reach the end of the line, group 2 starts the first line of the round.

Echo and Answer Songs

Divide the group in 2. One group sings a phrase and then is echoed or answered by the other group. You can add fun to the song by changing your voice, plugging your nose, putting your tongue in your cheek, etc.

Repetitive Songs and Familiar Songs

These are songs with a repeating chorus and very familiar tunes.
