What to Expect at a Sacred Harp Singing

Want to learn more? Though not required, there is a three-hour class on Friday, July 14 that will teach you the rudiments of Sacred Harp Singing, or shapenote singing which involves singing parts without accompaniment.  REGISTER FOR THE SACRED HARP SINGING SCHOOL.

ABOUT THE SHAPE-NOTE SINGING:  Shape note music is a 200-year-old, uniquely American style of hymn singing. This tradition is also known as Sacred Harp, after the title of the best-known shape note tune book. These haunting 4-part harmonies are sung in powerful, exuberant style, with singers seated in an open square. We sing not for performance but for the joy of singing and the community of singers, to which newcomers are always welcome. New singers, young and old, from many different backgrounds are attracted to the powerful old songs and find that shape note singing is a release for the spirit and a lot of fun.
