Shape Note in the Gallery

Friday September 29, 5:00pm
Art Gallery, Acadia University


Come join us for an hour of shape-note hymnody, an early American style of hymn singing that welcomes all ages, voices, and levels of experience to participate. We sing for the joy of it, pure and simple. It is not a performance, or an explicitly religious activity, rather a chance to be part of an accessible, interactive music experience. We sing from the Sacred Harp 1991 edition, copies will be provided.
