Albany Sacred Harp (Shape Note) Singing

December 24 @ 1:00 pm 3:30 pm EST

FREE  ◊  Participatory ◊  All ages ◊  All levels of musical (in)experience!

Sing four-part harmony with others and make a sound unlike anything else on earth..without auditions, rehearsals, or a commitment.  Just singing for joy!  All are welcome! We sing out of the Sacred Harp, 1991 Edition. Loaner books are available.

Every Saturday, 1-3:30pm

We sing in the Great Hall of St. George’s Episcopal Church in the Schenectady Stockade. The church’s address is 30 N Ferry St 12305, but direct your GPS to 214 Green St for the parking lot. There is a door leading directly from the parking lot to the Great Hall, on your right just before you go down the stairs to the church. (No stairs involved: wheelchair accessible!)

Parking lot off Green St. (GPS “214 Green St 12305”) – a door opens directly from the lot to the hall. Check online or FB for other special dates.
