New Gloucester, Shape Note Singing

June 1, 2019, 1:00 pm - 8:30 pm

You are invited to a weekend of Shape Note Singing. This year marks the twelfth Annual Shaker Meetinghouse and Francis Bliss Memorial Singing. Please join us on Saturday to sing in the historic Shaker Meetinghouse at Sabbathday Lake. The shapenote singing is a free, participatory event, not a performance. No experience is necessary and beginners are warmly welcomed. We will sing from the Sacred Harp, 1991 Denson edition. Books will be available for loan or purchase. There will be a break, but no food is allowed inside the meetinghouse. In the event of rain, we will sing in the Winter Chapel inside the brick Dwelling house.

There will be a potluck after the singing. After dinner, we will head north on Rt 26 to the Poland Spring Inn, where we will sing from 6:30 to 8:30 using the Cooper Book in the rotunda of the Maine State Building. FMI: 841-4923 or Sabbathday Lake Singing
