      This coming Saturday there is a SASSAS event that mixes traditional
      and avant garde sight-singing in West Hollywood.

      There is no (financial) cost.

      Kings Road Park Pavilion

      1:00 Sight-Singing using Shape Notes (workshop -- Jessica Catron)
      3:00 Traditional Sing from The Sacred Harp
      5:30 Alternative Sing
      6:00 Pot luck dinner in the park

      Here "Alternative Sing" refers to compositions created specifically
      for the SASSAS event by Los Angeles experimental composers Ezra Buchla
      and Laura Steenburge, artists Joyce Lightbody and Stephanie Taylor and
      SASSAS board member and LAFMS co-founder Joe Potts.

      For specific details:

      <http://sassas.org/sound/2011/shape.shtml>

      Shape note singing is traditional American acappella singing including
      works by "Yankee tunesmiths" such as William Billings (1746-1800) .

      Disclaimer -- I'm not one of the organizers or even member of SASSAS.

      My singing stuff is here:
