6th Annual Palo Alto All-day Singing
Please join us for the 6th annual Palo Alto All Day Singing, the Saturday before the 4th Sunday in August (August 26, 2017) — a full day of singing from The Sacred Harp, 1991 Denson edition. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and singing at 9:30. Dinner on the grounds at noon.
There will be an informal dinner Friday night: meet at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 7:00, we’ll walk to the Green Elephant for inexpensive Chinese food ($12-18), and stop at Rick’s Rather Rich Ice Cream for dessert. Then spend ten minutes and help set up chairs for the next day!
The Saturday social will be at Don’s house in downtown Palo Alto — directions available at the singing.
Then on Sunday, 3 more hours of singing from the Denson book — we’ve been invited to give a public demonstration of Sacred Harp singing from 2-5 p.m. at All Saints Church, 555 Waverly St., Palo Alto.
No experience necessary! Free and open to the public! We’ll lend you a Sacred Harp book!
