Sacred Harp Singing School and Community Singing/Potluck Luncheon
Please note, this event has expired.
Singers and history buffs alike will thoroughly enjoy this annual event! Sacred Harp Singing, sometimes also called ‘"fa-so-la" or shape-note singing, involves singing parts without instrumental accompaniment. The repertoire includes psalms, fugues, odes, and anthems by the first American composers (1770-1810) as well as folk songs and revival hymns (1810-1860). It is a non-denominational community music event that emphasizes participation, not expertise.
