At the top of the stairs walk straight ahead, down the hall[s] that take you around the lecture room you would first get to and you will find room 427A.

This Sunday at the Song Garden

Hello singing folk,

If you haven’t already received Dan’s invitation to join him at the Song Garden, here it is in this post, with all the helpful details that Dan thought of. Chelsea and I went to a singing there last year and I can tell you, it is wonderful. Dan and Peggy are wonderful hosts, and the gardens are beeooohtiful. I recommend coming early to wander around and enjoy the garden. You can also make friends with Dan’s dog which enjoys a network of plank paths that Dan has built into the bows of a pine tree. It’s amazing.

Hello singers,

This month’s 4th Sunday Norwich, VT Sacred Harp singing has been moved
for our annual SH singing at The Song Garden in Cornish, NH.

Please join us this Sunday, August 25th, from 3-5 pm, with a potluck
dinner to follow. Come and go as you please. Loaner books are
provided. If you’re coming from a distance and the potluck is a
hardship, don’t worry, we’ll take care of you!
Rain or shine. (If rain, we’ll sing in the bunkhouse. If storm, we’ll
move to the cabin around the corner at 558 Dingleton Hill Rd.)

The Song Garden is a pick-your-own flower garden and teahouse (and
labyrinth) run by Peggy Heath Ogilvy and myself. This is our 5th year.
We’re very proud of the peace and beauty of the place and would love
to share it with you and sing on the stage!

We will sing together March 2nd at 630pm at the Tulsi Tea Room.
If you want to drink tea and chat come around six. I‘ll be there, and if you have any more in depth questions to ask about shape-note singing, I’ll be happy to talk about that, or anything else.
I’ll bring loaner books to share.
We’re friendly and relaxed practice singing where you can just ask if you want to go over something.
We’ll have fun singing all together.

sincerely, IanImage00009

Feb 16th Montpelier local singing

Hello dear singers
Chelsea and I may host a singing next Saturday at the Tulsi Tea Room from 630 to 8pm.
For Chelsea and I home is in Waterbury Center so please RSVP whether or not you will come to the singing.
Please remember, we are a singing that is able to take time to go over voice parts so don’t hesitate to come if you are a less confident sight reader and singer. Bring a friend!
