Song Session Title

I you had a music book that was a collection of Shabbat Z'mirot, and also many 
non-Shabbat tunes, with more "American Nusach" type tunes, designed primarily 
for use in a Reform or Conservative enviroinment for when people want to get 
together and sing---what would you call it? It's obviously not exclusively 
z'mirot. The word kumsitz tends to get used pretty liberally - it has a more 
specific context when used by Orthodox Jews.

So-what do you call a song session like that: a sing-down? A Shir Fest? What? 
Your suggestions, which will be passed on to the party needing them, will be 
much appreciated.
