Shape Note Singing

June 6, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Experienced singer Karen Willard will lead this participation-based practice: singers face each other in a square and are led through songs in turns by individuals from the center of the square. Shape Note singing, also called sacred harp singing, has roots that extend back to eighteenth-century New England. Karen has been singing Sacred Harp shapenote music since 1989 and participates in most of the Sacred Harp singings in the greater Puget Sound region.
