OLLI: SHAPENOTES SINGING GROUP

Aug 5, 2014
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Ira Allen Chapel I201-I301 (Chapel)

Sacred Harp is a traditional New England style of participatory singing that is both dramatic and beautiful. It has been described as a proudly inclusive and democratic form that is not geared toward performance but to the moment of the sing. Sung a cappella in four part harmony, songs are taught by singing the "shapes" and then the words. No experience is necessary. Loaner books are provided. Free and open to the public. Regular attendees are strongly encouraged to sign up as a member of the OLLI program, which sponsors Sacred Harp's affiliation and use of UVM space.

Price: Free of charge
