Shape-note singers get new spot

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Shape-Note singing resumes on Sunday, Oct. 7, from 1 to 3 p.m., in the Mitchell Green Lounge, on the top floor of the tower of McCullough Student Center, Old Chapel Road at Middlebury College.
Shape-Note or Sacred Harp singing is an American traditional style of a cappella, four-part, social and spiritual, community-based, shape-note  singing. The music is powerful, moving, sublime and raucous, ancient and haunting. It has been called “18th century a cappella heavy metal” and “bluegrass Gregorian chanting.”
Mitchell Green Lounge is accessible by stairs and elevator. Loaner books are available. For more information, see FaceBook/Middlebury Shape Note Singers, fasola.org, or contact David Rosenberg at [email protected] The  singings are sponsored by the Scott Center for Religious and Spiritual Life and the Music Department. The group is free and open to all.
