Normally, we also sing on the 3rd Saturday of each month, but we’ll cancel that singing since almost all of our strong singers will be out of town.

 

All are most welcome regardless of experience!  Loaner books are available.

Due to active travel schedules of our most active singers, we will not sing this month locally.

 

So we look forward to July with even greater enthusiasm:)

May Schedule

We have three opportunities to sing locally this month!

 

Thursday, May 10, from 7:30—9 pm.  Friends Meeting House (1104 Forest Street).

 

Saturday, May 12, from 12:45—1:15. Festival of Cultures at Washington Park. Please RSVP to me (john@virginia.edu) to let me know you’re coming:) We’ll approach this as a **very brief** singing school, inviting festival participants to join us.  I’ll have a packet of songs that we’ll sing with any newcomers.  Several of our strongest singers have already committed, so we’ll have all four parts covered. If you are still getting oriented to Shape Note Singing, this is a great opportunity to have fun and learn at the same time:)

 

Saturday, May 19, from 4:00—7:30 pm with a break for a pot luck dinner and fellowship at 6 at the Friends Meeting House (1104 Forest Street).

 

All are most welcome regardless of experience!  Loaner books are available.
