We meet the second Saturday of each month from 3 - 5 PM
A fun and accepting place.
Not a singer? No problem, just come to listen or learn.
We have loaner books so you can follow along. Get a peek into our historical past by reading along the lyrics that were so meaningful to those who first built this country.
Hello from Stuart Ivey
I am going to be presenting a clinic at the College Band Directors National Association Conference on the campus of Arizona State on either the morning of February 21 or 22. The clinic is titled "Exploring Wind Band Repertoire Based On Shape Note Melodies." As a lifelong singer, this area of research combines my Sacred Harp upbringing with my career as a band director, and my hope is to raise awareness not only of this band music, but also of the Sacred Harp community!
My hope is that I would be able to get at least three other experienced singers to accompany me to demonstrate Sacred Harp singing. I would be able to sing tenor or bass, so a treble, alto, and tenor/bass would be great. If we could get more, even better, but since it is a weekday morning, I figure it might be hard to recruit singers. The presentation portion is only 15 minute, so we would only have time to sing one or two songs with a quick run through a few minutes before the presentation. I would be happy to take any willing volunteers out for coffee or lunch as time allows while I'm in the Phoenix area!
Please pass on this information and let me know if anyone might be interested. Thanks in advance!
