5th Annual Palo Alto All-day Singing

PAAD 2015, Linda leading

Please join us for the 5th annual Palo Alto All Day Singing, the Saturday before the 4th Sunday in August (August 27, 2016)! 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 around noon.

There will be an informal dinner Friday night: meet at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 7:15, 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!

Social after the singing Saturday evening will involve ice cream, and will be at the church.

Then on Sunday, come sing at the fourth Sunday singing in Palo Alto on Sunday. We’ll sing for three hours, from 2-5 p.m.
