"Sing the shapes" from the Christian Harmony, a seven-shape version of a singing tradition that dates back 200 years and is still practiced in parts of the South. After an introduction to reading shape notation, we'll practice singing old-time hymns in four-part harmony. The class may also participate in the Folk School's annual sing, which draws participants from a four-state area. Students of all levels should be prepared to share their voices in small and large groups.

Tuition: $354.00
