Two days of exuberant, unaccompanied four-part harmony!
Saturday’s All Day Singing is music from The Sacred Harp tunebook.
Sunday’s All Day Singing begins with a free singing school taught by life-long singer Jane Spencer from Georgia. This music is from another traditional source called “Christian Harmony” with seven shape notation.

Most of the music has sacred lyrics but no religious, political or social philosophy is embraced or endorsed. This community music-making is intended to be fun, social and free of performance constraints. Books available to borrow for the day. Free potluck lunch at noon provided by local singers. All ages welcome, no experience necessary!
