Local Singings

All are welcome at any singing! Absolutely no experience required. All singings are from The Sacred Harp, 1991 Edition (Denson book) unless otherwise noted. Loaner books are almost always available, and we usually have books for sale as well.

In-person events may be moved or cancelled due to COVID. Contact the host to confirm details. COVID vaccination is required for all in-person events. Please do not attend an in-person event if you are feeling sick.
