Surry Hills Shape Note Singers
3pm, Sunday 17th February 2013

The Surry Hills Shape Note Singers sing four-part acapella traditional sacred harp music from a book called The Sacred Harp, in the shape note tradition. It is an open group. No musical or singing experience is required - just the desire to sing!

The next sing will be on Sunday 17 February 2013 at 3pm. We'll be meeting up at the historic Observatory Hill bandstand, The Rocks (how to get there). We'll have a lovely sing in the fresh air if the weather is good and move to Eimear's place nearby if it's not.

The group welcomes everybody of all ages, ability levels, political and religious backgrounds..the common ground is that they sing together. The singing is rousing and uplifting.
