Summer songs workshop + performance
Workshop: 1–4PM Snack Break: 4–5PM Performance: 5–6PM
Learn to sing shape note music this Saturday with a free workshop by Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg and Carrie Dashow.
Presenting new songs written over summer on their Subliminal History of New York State: Route of Progress tour, Carrie and Jesse invite everyone to join them in a performance to sing shape note songs, pop some balloons, and welcome the Fall!
Shape note singing, over 200 years old, is a boisterous community singing style designed to make singing accessible to everyone. The more the merrier, and the louder the better!
