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 or just listen! No experience is necessary and singing books are provided.
Singing starts at 5 PM every second Sunday in the Parish Hall; we break in the middle for a potluck and fellowship.
