Shape Notes Singers

large sacredharp200px

This Thursday, come enjoy the centuries-old art of shape note singing! The Capitol City Shape Note Singers will return for their 28th annual singing event here at Old Alabama Town.

This all-day event brings folks from around the state to sing together using the traditional art of shape notes. In 1801, shapes were added to music notations to help singers find pitch, and the tradition has been kept alive in the South for many years now. Sponsored by the Alabama Center for Traditional Culture, a division of the Alabama State Council on the Arts, and Landmarks Foundation.

Thursday, July 17th from 10am to 3pm. Located in the Loeb Reception Center at Old Alabama Town, 301 Columbus St. Feel free to stop by and listen anytime throughout the day! Free admission.
