We gather on 2nd and 4th Thursday from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with a break at 8:15 for a light potluck supper.
We sing from the 1991 Sacred Harp, the Shenandoah Harmony and other shape note tunebooks.
Shape note singing is an American, a capella choral tradition with roots that stretch back into the Colonial period and beyond. Characterized by open harmonies and a raw, powerful sound, shape note singing is music designed primarily for participation, rather than performance. The most commonly used tune book in the shape note tradition is The Sacred Harp, 1991 Revision.
