Group Singing: Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers
1:30 pm: Instruction for beginners
2:00 - 4 pm: Group Singing, all
Songbooks provided, beginners welcome!
Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers (http://bit.ly/WilmNCSacredHarp) presents a traditional Sacred Harp Singing and invite you to join in the music and raise your voice in song! This dynamic form of a cappella social singing dates back to Colonial America, using a modern reprint of the 1844 songbook "The Sacred Harp". Sacred Harp and related shape-note styles are the oldest continuous singing traditions in the United States. Surviving as a living tradition in parts of the South, notably Georgia and Alabama, Sacred Harp music has been discovered by new generations of singers who have spread the heritage across North America and to Australia and Europe.
The music is loud, vigorous and intense. It is meant to be sung, not just observed. No previous experience is necessary. Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org. Free and open to the public, Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.
Jazz: The FROG Project
It’s been quite some time since the series last had a concert by the FROG Project (www.frogprojectlive.com/), a dynamic collective of keyboardist Kevin Kolb, flutist/saxophonist Teddy Burgh, percussionist Troy Pierce, and bassist Ryan Woodall. In late 2009, through the brainstorm and probing of Kevin Kolb, the four came together in his F.R.O.G. (Finished Room over the Garage) and began to create. The chemistry was immediate, and the FROG Project was born. With influences from numerous musical genres, including but not limited to jazz, pop, and world music, the group performs original compositions and fresh innovative arrangements of familiar items.
