Maine Sacred Harp Singers
June 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
BATH – The Maine Sacred Harp Singers will create a wonderful sound on Sunday, June 30th from 2:00-5:00 PM at 798 Washington Street, The Neighborhood United Church of Christ.
Shapenote singing is primarily from the The Sacred Harp, a tunebook that has been in continuous publication with periodic revisions since 1844. A system of “shapenotes” in the tunebook supplements ordinary musical notation with a system of shaped noteheads that indicate the notes and intervals of the musical scale, making it easier to learn to read the music.
Sacred Harp or Fasola music is sung à cappella–that is, by voices alone in harmony without instrumental support or accompaniment. The Maine Sacred Harp Singers sing in the traditional way, facing each other in a hollow square. The sound is amazing!
Please join us for a note and song-filled afternoon! Beginners welcome! There is no charge for this event.
