Star Harmony: Choral Singing

September 14, 2018 to September 16, 2018

A weekend of a cappella and piano/SATB choral singing: arrangements of folk songs, hymns, spirituals, gospel, seasonal songs, shape note songs and songs written by folks steeped in the oral tradition; for directors and singers in community, church and hospice choruses, and for those who simply love to sing. The event goes from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch. The schedule will include lots of singing, but also unstructured free time to explore the island. Participants will go home with a book of all the music sung through the weekend.
