A traditional shape note singing will take place Monday, Feb. 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the First Church Fellowship Hall, between Church and Court Streets (entrance on Spring Street).

Shape note singing, also known as Sacred Harp singing, is energetic four-part unaccompanied community singing dating from Colonial New England. The singing is open to all, at no cost, and newcomers are most welcome. Books will be available for loan and purchase.
