This October long weekend Sydney will be ringing with the sounds of old time American folk and gospel music when the first ever Sacred Harp Singing Convention. Singers will be traveling from all over the country and even overseas to converge on an old church hall in Annandale on Saturday the 6th October to sing this amazing music together.
Sacred Harp is a completely inclusive, communal and democratic form of music making open to singers of all ages and ability levels.
Everyone is welcome to come to the convention and sing or to just sit and listen. The day starts at 10am with donations welcome to help cover the cost of putting on the event. For more information check out the Surry Hills Sacred Heart Singers facebook group or the official Facebook invite here.
