Shape Note Singing 

2ND THURSDAY OF THE MONTH 

7:30-9:30PM

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.

Painting Party with Trisha Mae
Later Event: January 11
