Shape Note Singing

When: Sun., Jan. 11, 2 p.m. 2015

The multiphonic choral music found in the nineteenth century Sacred Harp songbooks is otherworldly, wholly strange, alien-sounding, and delightful. When folks get together to sing from these books, all who attend are strongly encouraged to participate, regardless of skill. It's this highly democratic principle that gives the music much of its rough hewn charm. The Ark's Sacred Harp singing group meets on the second Sunday of the month, and all are welcome. The group meets from 2 to 5 p.m.; Admission is free

Price: Free
