Shape Note Singing 

2nd Thursday of the Month 


Shape-note singing is community music that takes its name from the four shaped notes patented in Philadelphia in 1798: Fa, Sol, La, and Mi. This living singing tradition is unlike any other form of American sacred music both in its vibrant sound and in its distinctive singing practice. All are welcome to sing with us. No experience is necessary and singing books are provided. 


Artistic Affirmation and Accountability: A constructive and friendly critique group!

Thursday, Sept 27, 7-8:30pm

Thursday, Oct 25, 7-8:30pm

This group is for artists to bring their weaknesses and turn them into strengths with the support of other artists. Bring your preliminary work, WIP, or finished pieces for feedback. Know that other artists are encouraging you and want to see your completed work. Finished is better than perfect!




Play Group


Play Group for small children (0-4years) with their parent/guardian. Toys, crafts, storytime, and coffee will be provided!
