2 - 5 PM
68 Avenue C @ 5th Street
Come sing-along to early American music! Participatory, a capella, sacred. We will join one of the groups that gather monthly for Sacred Harp Singing in New York City.
"Shape note singing is a centuries-old, living American tradition of social singing. The Sacred Harp is the most popular of the shape note tunebooks, and there are many groups across the United States, as well as Canada and the U.K., that sing from it regularly. Sacred Harp singing is at turns stirring, cathartic, and haunting. It is the center of scores of regional communities, which in turn form a nationwide community united by song and fellowship that crosses all socio-political and economic boundaries. All are welcome to any Sacred Harp singing regardless of musical experience or religious affiliation. There is no admission fee to any Sacred Harp event." from Manhattan SingRSVPs welcome, but not required, on Facebook or Meetup.com
