If you want an introduction to some of the quirky folksy things
about Shape Note Singing (e.g. the raised sixth in the "minor"
scale), a Learner's Group session will be held this Saturday
(May 7), from 4 to 6 p.m. in Santa Monica.
For details about Learner's Group:
LA Shape Note in general:
Both the all-day sing and the Learner's Group are free of charge.
Loaner books are available.
In Shape Note singing everybody sings all the time (4 solid
hours of singing for everybody + 1 hour dinner). It's not a
performance situation where we take turns listening to each
other. But we take turns calling songs.
Hope to hear you there,
