Shape-note Singing Intensive
Summer 2014 quarter
Shape note music has captivated and inspired American singers for two hundred years. Its dissonant harmonies and full-throated vocal style have led to the label “gospel-punk”. In this short, intensive course we will learn the basics of this music and its practices, and then travel to Buckley, Washington to participate in an All-Day Singing event. All skill levels are welcome. Students can expect to improve their music literacy, vocal strength, and sight-singing skills; they will also learn about the history of American hymnody.
