Eugene Sacred Harp Singers
All are welcome to come sing or listen.
SPECIAL UPCOMING EVENTS:
Thursday, June 2: Hope Abbey singing, 7:30-9 PM. In the mausoleum of the Masonic Cemetery, up 26th east of (i.e. uphill from) Potter St. Able-bodied can park on Potter or environs and walk up 26th; some parking for disabled is available up by the building. Acoustics are great; building tends to be a little cool, so bring an extra layer. Public welcome to attend and sing along; loaner books available.
July 30: Sacred Harp Singers will be singing on stage at Saturday Market, 8th and Oak, at noon.
August 5: Eugene Sacred Harp singers will open for the No Shame Theater event, 7:30-8 in the Atrium (10th and Olive), part of the First Friday art walk evening in downtown Eugene.
SUMMER: (Memorial Day to Labor Day) - Singings happen on the second and
fourth Thursdays of each month, 7 pm until dark outside, in Maury Jacobs
Park, at the end of N. Adams St. (If it is raining, call Jean Murphy at
541.342.4131 to find out where we are meeting.)
WINTER: Currently, singings will usually happen on second Thursdays of the
month in private homes, usually 7:30-9 PM unless the host wants it
earlier. We are open to finding a new regular location and welcome
suggestions of places that are conveniently located, reasonably priced or
free, and non-allergenic. Send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until we find such a place, the best way to get updated is to get onto the
Discussion list to be notified when and where singings will take place
Members are encouraged to offer up other possibilities other times of the
month, such as Sunday potlucks and singing. If you want to offer to host,
it is probably a good idea to post it to the Discussions list first for
feedback, and then let everyone know when the event is firmed up.
