GROUP SINGING: Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers

Sunday, 1/26/2020
1:30PM-4:00PM  
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. 1:30 pm: Instruction for beginners, 2:00 - 4 pm: Group Singing, all. Songbooks provided, beginners welcome! Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org.

Free and open to the public. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
In 2018 Andrew Berinson won the Yamaha Award at the American Jazz Pianist Competition in Melbourne, FL, granting him an opportunity to record under his own name at Yamaha Artist Services in downtown Manhattan. His musical vision is joyful: “I want my music to be an expression of hope for all of humanity. I want it to bring people together and make them happy. As an artist I feel it is my responsibility to be as honest as I can be through my work. I want people to feel that their existence is intrinsically meaningful, that the God of this universe is one of unfailing love, and that there is always hope.”
