Event details

The Kaw Valley Shape Note Singing Association has been hosting shape note singing in Lawrence and northeast Kansas since 1991. Shape note singing is a very community-oriented, inclusive form of a capella four-part harmony singing. Beginners are welcome,and we charge no admission fee or dues. While most of the tunesin the book we sing from (which dates back to the 1840's) are hymns and anthems, we are a cultural, not religion-based organization. Shape note singing is also known as Sacred Harp singing. It is done for the joy of singing, not as performance.Our sings are usually on the first Sunday of the month, usually at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 2211 Inverness Drive in Lawrence.Events:Sunday, February 1 1:30-3:30pm at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church,2211 Inverness Drive in Lawrence, Kansas.Sunday, February 22: Special sing from 11:45a.m.- 1:45p.m.at the Penningtons, 2203 Massachusetts Street.
