      It's four-part a cappella harmony. It originated in
      America. It's been around for more than a century, &
      it's still being sung & enjoyed today. And it's NOT
      barbershop harmony!

      It's Sacred Harp singing--also known as shapenote or
      fasola singing--and it will be featured at a special
      1860s Holiday Open House to be hosted by the Evanston
      Historical Society Sunday afternoon, Dec. 12.
      Location is the Charles G. Dawes mansion at 225
      Greenwood St. (one block north of Dempster St. just
      east of Sheridan Rd.) in Evanston.

      There'll be a workshop starting at 1 p.m. and a
      demonstration (with participation) from 2 to 4 p.m.
      All events are free & open to the public, but
      reservations to the workshop are recommended.

      You can learn lots more about Sacred Harp singing
      through the auspices of the good folks at Google &
      other Web search engines, but for more info about the
      Dec. 12 open house, phone 847/475-3410 or visit the
      Evanston Historical Society Web site at
