The Sacred Harp, continuously in print since 1844, is the backbone of one of this country’s oldest, most vital, and soul-stirring musical traditions. You have to sing it to believe it! The convention is free, and beginners are welcome! We’ll have books available to borrow. Come and go as you please!

Singing will begin at 10:00 AM on both Saturday and Sunday. Note that Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday. We’ll have dinner on the grounds at 12:30 PM both days, and a social on Saturday evening at the home of a local singer.

There will be childcare offered on Saturday and Sunday.

The War Memorial Building is wheelchair accessible. All singing is on one floor and there are no stairs. The all-gender restroom and the childcare space are not wheelchair accessible, but we are happy to help with any necessary accommodations.

Housing is available with local singers! Questions? Email wmshc.housing@gmail.com.

Email wmshcchair@gmail.com with any general questions.

There will also be singing on Friday night in Northampton before the convention. See the following link for details: https://www.facebook.com/events/614731518976131/
