These 7 p.m. singalongs for essential workers are getting more elaborate. Musicians are preparing for a special symphonic event on Wednesday that will allow people across the city to harmonize (or symphonize?) together on their instruments or with their voices. the song produced is called “For Our Courageous Workers”. The details are below.

Then on Thursday, the Peace of Heart Choir will once again lead a group song — this time it’s Ben E. King’s classic “Stand By Me”.

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me
