THIS IS A PAST EVENT

Sacred Harp Singing School and Community Singing/Potluck Luncheon

All Ages
FREE

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.

Community Singing and Potluck Luncheon: Saturday, July 18, 2015 10AM – 4PM

On Saturday, July 18,  Sacred Harp singers young and old will travel from throughout the Southeast for the annual singing and potluck luncheon at Spivey Hall. Bring a covered dish to share and prepare to enjoy a soul-stirring musical experience and wonderful fellowship. Please bring your own Sacred Harp book and if you have any extras, please bring those to share! All are welcome, from beginning singers to life-long experts!   

Saturday’s events are free and open to the public.
